Sergio Martinez: 'I'm Sure' That I'll KO Miguel Cotto

Sergio Martinez has shown fight-stopping power since crashing the scene with a TKO win over Alex Bunema in 2008, but he hasn't won inside the distance since 2012.

Martinez (51-2-2, 28 KOs) believes that will change with his June 7 middleweight championship defense against Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31 KOs) on HBO PPV.

"I'm sure that I will win the fight by knockout because I'm training in a very hard and intense way and with such motivation that everyday I'm hitting harder, throwing more punches," Martinez said through a translator on a media conference call Tuesday. "Whatever Cotto will do in the ring, doesn't matter to me, I don't care."

A reported questioned Martinez's power at middleweight, to which the champ scoffed: "I knocked out Dzinziruk and I showed power. I knocked out Paul Williams and I showed power."

Cotto is fighting at middleweight for the first time which should aide "Maravilla" in his quest for the KO.

[QUOTE=JmH Reborn]How far back is a few years for you? Cotto fought the best fighter in the world 2 years ago. An up and coming champ who was highly rated. He also fight the guy who beat him and beat Sergio, even if he was past prime. He also fought the best fighter in the planet again in 200...

[QUOTE=JmH Reborn]Except Quintana already undressed him for 12 one sided rounds. So... I think Margarito in a rematch would have won. He was coming on really strong in the last half. 2007 Mosley I would favor to really chop him down 2009 Pac I think would be a 50/50. If not 60/40 in Pac...

[QUOTE=Bigg Rigg]After Cotto beats him, the excuses will be outta this world! Sergio is done, he's washed up blah, blah, blah.....[/QUOTE] What about if Sergio beats Cotto to a pulp? "Cotto was just a blown up JMW", "Cotto was too small", "Cotto had been in too many wars"
