Sergio Martinez: I Can't See Cotto Lasting Beyond Nine!

Question - You have been waiting to face Cotto for almost 4 years. Why do you think he wants to fight you now?

Sergio Martinez - Miguel Cotto believes that I am ripe for the picking and that my age has finally caught with me. What he doesn’t realize is that for the Martin Murray fight, I had many injuries going into the fight. I did not want to postpone the event because it was always a dream of mine to defend my title in Argentina so we as a team decided to go forward with the fight with Martin Murray. I still came out victorious in that fight but Miguel Cotto thinks I’m on the decline, which is the only reason I believe he chose to face me now.

What Miguel Cotto doesn’t realize that is I am extremely motivated for this fight. Not just because I don’t necessarily care for Miguel Cotto, but I want to prove him wrong in thinking that I’m not an elite fighter.

Miguel Cotto is a good fighter and a future hall of famer, but he will not become the World Middleweight Champion by defeating me. The only way I see this fight ending, is with Miguel Cotto being knocked out. I cannot see the fight going past nine rounds.

I think it's going to go all 12. They're both going to be tired as hell after 9 rounds.

[QUOTE=thatdudespits]Cotto relies on his skills not athleticism to win fights and Cotto is more skilled than Martinez. People keep talking about size being an advantage for Martinez while I see it as a disadvantage facing a smaller quicker opponent than Sergio is used to. I think this will be...

Oh Sergio. Can't help but picture rust combined with shot reflexes making him look like a drunk wino at 3:00 AM. He almost has to KO Cotto in order to win.

[QUOTE=drenlou]It may be the other way around, martinez might not make it past round 9 becuz his knees might fail him and hes forced to quit on the stool! What a way to lose the belt! It can happen.[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=LarryXXX]Hope Martinez doesn't break down in the ring like Yuri Foreman did[/QUO...
