Sergio Martinez Expects Canelo To Pick Miguel Cotto

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (50-2-2, 28KOs) does not expect to secure a fight with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, the undefeated WBC champion at 154-pounds.

Martinez, coming off a dominating performance against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., wants to return in late April or early May of next year. He would like to fight Canelo and then stage a fall rematch with Chavez Jr. To make the fight happen, Martinez is willing to move down to 154-pounds, but he doesn't expect Canelo to accept the challenge.

Martinez is well aware of the unbeaten boxer's options. He predicts Canelo will fight former three division champion Miguel Cotto - if the Puerto Rican star is able to defeat WBA "regular" champ Austin Trout on December 1 in New York.

"Canelo has better and safer offers. After what happened to [Chavez] Junior, logic would tell me that he'll fight Cotto [because] there is less risk and more money," Martinez said.

[QUOTE=GRUSTLER;12580341]The funny thing about it is that Golovkin KO'd one guy in the States that no one ever heard of in dominate fashion but all of a sudden he is a threat to someone who is just all around dominate…

[QUOTE=Camp Beast;12580005]Why would Martinez fight Golovkin at this point in his career? All risk and no reward. Barely anyone knows the guy and his resume is unimpressive. Martinez is a top P4P fighter who is looking for big paychecks at…
