Sergio Martinez: Williams Perfect For Cotto or Dzinziruk

By Chris LaBate

Middleweight king Sergio Martinez is siding with Erislandy Lara. Martinez scored Saturday's fight in favor of the Cuban boxer, with a final marker of 116-111. HBO had it scored 117-111 for Lara, but the three official judges saw a different outcome, and handed Paul "The Punisher" Williams a twelve round majority decision win. The official scores were 114-114, 115-114 and 116-114.

After the fight was over, Williams challenged Martinez to a trilogy fight. Williams won a controversial majority decision over Martinez in December of 2009, which Martinez avenged with a two round knockout in their November 2010 rematch. Martinez returns in October against Darren Barker, and has other opportunities on his mind. He said Williams would be a perfect opponent for Miguel Cotto and Sergei Dzinziruk, who are both champions at 154-pounds.

"Paul is a perfect oponent for Cotto or Dzinziriuk," Martinez said.

[QUOTE=b0ndsj0ns20;10823895]Cotto has no chance of stopping him. I didn't think so before Saturday's fight, and still don't after seeing that while PW may have lost a little he hasn't lost his chin or will to fight. Cotto fought and got…

I think at this point Cotto would flattened Williams just by how much Williams gets hit and Cotto can still hurt and drop a fighter AND I think even Dzinziriuk can beat him as well. Paul is done by the…
