Sergio Martinez: Cotto vs. Canelo is a 50-50 Fight

By Ryan Burton

Former lineal middleweight champion Sergio Martinez is excited at the prospects of a showdown between Miguel Cotto, who dethroned him in June, and former junior middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez. The fight is being discussed to take place on Cinco de Mayo weekend next year.

Martinez feels that the fighters are very evenly matched and that the millions of fans who will be watching worldwide will ultimately be the real winners.

"The biggest winner will be the fans in that fight. I believe that is a 50-50 fight. It can go either way," Martinez told BoxingScene.com.

Martinez is expected to make an announcement on his career soon. If doctors give him the greenlight to continue his career then he will fight on. If not he said he will retire. If he doesn't set foot inside a ring again Martinez said that the reception he received last year when he fought Martin Murray in his native Argentina is an experience he will never forget.

"It is something I will never forget. 50,000 people screaming my name. Imagine that?" Said Martinez.

60-40 to Canelo is about right I think. Cotto is a great fighter, but I think this is a match where youth > experience.

[QUOTE=chepe009;14976543]Whoever hurts the other the most will win. Both are very good boxers, canelo has the edge in speed but it's nothing cotto haven't seen before.[B]I've never seen canelo hurt but he's never fought a guy as powerful as cotto.…
