> Why is Martinez settling for Cotto without testing the Mayweather sweepstakes waters?

I think Martinez-Cotto will be a great fight, but now might be the opportunity for Martinez to get Floyd, a fight he's always claimed to want. Now there is not even a mention of it? I know he's been loyal to HBO but come on. He's not even an Arum fighter. If Martinez demolishes Cotto I don't think Floyd takes the fight, and if Martinez loses he can kiss any chance of getting Floyd goodbye. If I were his team I'd be pushing for Floyd (since Sergio looked vulnerable in his last fight) and have Cotto as a Plan B. Your thoughts?

Settle for cotto? Do you know the pay day he could possibly fuck up by stirring those waters? Lol, at 38 coming off injuries and back to a division with fresh faces at the tail of his career you think he is that stupid? Lmao

Why go for the loss when you can go for the win

"If Martinez demolishes Cotto I don't think Floyd takes the fight"

In the words of DMX, "Here we go again....."

My guess is he wants to continue fighting lol. Him and Pacquiao peaked in popularity partially on the notion that they somehow were the biggest threats to Floyd and that he didn't want to fight them. I say fight Cotto. Make that money that Cotto is sure to generate. Then maybe try your luck. If you don't get passed Cotto, then you weren't beatin Floyd anyway lol

At this point, Sergio's been trying his best to land fights against Manny and Floyd, to no avail. If he lands a Cotto fight after all of that trying, then that would sure be better than ending his career while fighting any other meaningless (read: not good for his career) fights.

Cotto is the best money fight for Martinez at this point, besides a JCCJR rematch. Plus the Floyd fight would produce another catch weight situation for Floyd to explain since he publicly frowned upon catch weights. Also who wants to see Martinez drain all the way down to 152 or 154 just for a payday?
