Sergio Martinez cannot take it in the gut. Miguel Cotto is gonna whip his butt. Going for the fighter with bad knees is insane. Danggit! I hear rain on my window pane. M-Co is taking S-Ma DOWN. And is going to make him fall like a scarecrow clown. Holla!


brownsugar :

Cotton is like an Urban Legend that never dies... No matter how many times he is defeated he comes back as a more terrifying threat than the last time


amayseng :

Holy smokes my post went missing. I dont see Cotto having success doing what he wants in this fight. Trout boxed circles around Cotto and Sergio is 3 levels above Trout and is a hitter. Cotto is going to get busted up in this one, badly. The knee will be fine, Sergio will feint and move just enough to stop Cotto in his tracks and land those left hands all night. Floyd wobbled Cotto at least twice what do you think Sergio is gonna do to him?

Carmine Cas :

It depends which Sergio shows up amazing one but that's just me trying not jinx the marvelous one. On paper Sergio butchers Cotto, look up Miguel's last name in italian, it's already written on the wall.


amayseng :

I know I am doing the math on paper. Of course we arent sure what Sergio will show up, or Cotto for that matter. That what makes this matchup so intriguing.

I'm certain that a crushing, arse-whipping Miguel Cotto will show. And a good athletic, but terrible-boxing, Sergio Martinez will show. And M-Co will win this show. Holla!

I see what you mean, but at the same time Trout's more of a conventional boxer than Martinez, who's style requires the ability to constantly use irregular moves, angles and variation in rhythm. Cotto has flaws, but also the discipline and ability to wait for him to slow down and be more stationary. Martinez burned his last candles in his grand stand vs Jr; question is how many candles Cotto has left. This fight is what boxing's about; different opinions, excitement in the air. It's gonna be a great wait til june.
