Sergio Martinez, the WBC middleweight champion, will come to the ring for his fight with challenger Miguel Cotto second, AFTER Cotto, we are told by Team Martinez' Nathan Lewkowicz.

Er, why? Hadn't Cotto requested, during negotiations, to come in second, in the slot reserved for the champ, as part of his package of requests?

“They changed it last second, no clue why,” Nathan told us. “I guess to mess with our heads.”

I am dubious as to whether the order of ringwalk will actually impact the fight at all…but anyway…I asked Nathan if there is any meaningfullness to this late change, if indeed this switcheroo will impact Team Martinez.

“Doubtful,” he said.

Roach needs to stop crying wolf. He doesn't need all this games he likes playing ,he does fine just doing his work.

Just more games... unnecessary at that stage.. Diva did his best to play with Martinez... In the end he didn't need to do all of that because it came to light how horribly handicapped Martinez really was..

Anything to upset or distract the opponent gives an advantage, however small. Just another thing for Martinez to be thinking about as he walked to the ring.
