Sergio Martinez: Cotto May Not Even Last Five Rounds!

By Elisinio Castillo, notifight.com

WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs) will be looking for blood if a fight is finalized with Puerto Rican superstar Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs) for June 7th at New York's Madison Square Garden.

The negotiations continue, with Martinez angered because he claims Cotto is making a high volume of demands. He says Cotto should remember that he is the challenger and not the champion in the equation.

"He should never forget that I'm the champion. He has a lot of demands, but I'm the champion. I'll say it, I don't think that he'll last five rounds. I would like to fight Cotto, but he is showing signs that he doesn't want to [fight], by asking for complicated conditions and he does not respect boxing history. I'm ready to knock Cotto out in five or six rounds and I know I will. He can not resist me. Disrespecting me is a very unfortunate thing. He should not forget that I'm the champion," Martinez said.

[QUOTE=cabalas;14090941]In that case Miguel Cotto is already a hypocrite since the rematch fight with Margarito was at catchweight of 153 Lbs. (I know it was only one pound below the limit but Cotto's team originally wanted 150 #s and Miguel…

[QUOTE=OffDaChainChico;14087617]If this is the case, I'll lose some respect for Cotto. He was the main one complaining about how Manny's championship at 147 was illegitimate because it was a catchweight fight. He better not be a hypocrite.[/QUOTE] In that case…
