Cshel, Dolomite, I have to agree with you guys. I think this will be all for nothing because I fully expect Martinez to come out victorious in June....and like Cshel said, Cotto is not the most businesses savvy guy out there. I think the worse decision he made was to fight Trout. Cotto has the rep of fighting any and all comers but check out his opponents to get those title belts in recent yrs. Remember he fought some no hoper for the WBO belt @147, then he fought Yuri Foreman for the belt @154, then he went at Trout and it finally backfired on him

He picks title holders who he thinks pose little risk to him , it's going to backfire on him again when he faces Martinez

Roach is his trainer, all offensive, little concern for strategic fighting. Cotto left himself open too many times against Delvin. Sergio will make him pay dearly. They may have to stop this fight.

MSG, Barclays and the MGM are the same to me... same as Comisky, Cowboy and Yankee stadium

I understand your point, we just disagree here, also MSG was quiet during rounds 11 and 12 for Cotto-Clottey when 90% in attendance felt their countryman had lost, lead to many Rican-Ghanian skirmishes in the aisles

I learn something new everyday, I didn't know that but i can see why they were upset because I felt Miguel lost to Clottey

I don't believe Roach would stop the fight. I think he'd let Cotto get beat on and that's what I expect to happen. It's true that the body punching Cotto appears to be back but he's sacrificed some defense to do so.

Yall killing me with this "if he's not 100%" ish...

When has Martinez not come into a fight 100%. Plus he's been begging for a Cotto fight for years now so you don't think he will get up for this fight?
It's like and excuse is already forming.

If Cotto beats him it would be a solid victory. Both are on the decline.

Edit: Imo btw, Cotto loses, simply because of too much size. His punches were bouncing off of Trout.. what is supposed to happen with a full middle?
