Watch him do Cotto like PWill now that I said that

Not unless he gets his legs underneath him again.

Cotto has won every round for me. Kinda makes that talk about all the demands, and Sergio calling him a primadonna look silly.

Sergio will get dropped again in this fight by a left hook.

Made Sergio look like he didn't belong in the ring with him.

Well done to Cotto.

Martinez was never the same boxer after that knee injury. It's gonna be Miguel Cotto vs. Gennady Golovkin for the Lineal Middleweight title.

If Canelo beats Lara next month, it'll be Cotto-Canelo at 160 next. Makes way too much sense (and much more money), especially now with Top Rank and Golden Boy talking reconciliation.

It feels like Cotto may be more complete a fighter now than he has ever been. Say what you will about Martinez -- yes, he is well past his prime -- but that was still an impressive outclassing.

Martinez vs. Cotto full fight. Cotto became the first four divison Puerto Rican Champion.

It's refreshing to watch a boxer who actually tries to finish his opponent.

If they fought when Sergio was in his prime he would destroy Cotto.

That was probably the most depressing way for Martinez to end his career. He got a nice pay day and it was obvious he was injured before the fight.

I didn't see the fight, was Martinez shot or did Cotto just make him look bad?

Mostly it was Martinez being shot IMO. He hasn't been the same since he messed up his knee in the Chavez fight.

I think Mayweather's next opponent is Miguel Cotto. He wants to win the middleweight championship.
