Sergio Martinez Getting His Head Right After Cotto Loss

By Elisinio Castillo

Former two division world champion Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez is getting psychological treatment to deal with June's TKO defeat to Miguel Cotto, according to longtime adviser Sampson Lewkowicz. Martinez, who appeared to be fighting with a knee issue, was knocked down several times before the fight was waved off and Cotto received a victory in ten.

"It's really bad. He says that he does not sleep at night. He is with a psychologist, because he still doesn't know how to react to a loss like that. He says it wasn't him that night and he doesn't know what happened," revealed Lewkowicz to newspaper La Voz del Interior. "He can not move forward without knowing if he's really finished or if he still has more.

The Uruguayan businessman stated that Martinez will travel to Las Vegas to witness the battle between Marcos Maidana and Floyd Mayweather on September 13, and then three days later Martinez will get a full range of physical studies in New York.

Martinez has already announced that he plans to continue his career.

"The problem is not in the knees, but he want to get a full review," Lewkowicz said.

Need to see a dentist all that smack he was talking before the fight. That's the only doctor he need to see.

Damn, King Cotto took this dudes mind, body, and soul. The Cotto/Freddy/MacMillan connection is unstoppable.
