Sergio “Maravilla” Martínez (51-2-2, 28 KOs), of Quilmes, Buenos Aires, Argentina, has never lost a world championship fight, and this time he will defend the title he first won in 2010.

Hilarious!!

The Shadow says:

And awesome with the subtitles. Just great. Much better than those lame translations.

Radam G says:

He also has a killa' left hook to the liver. Sergio will feel it and that hugh ego. Holla!

deepwater2 says:

Sergio is trying to bully cotto !

Skibbz says:

I don't see Cotto having much of a shot, hoping for a stoppage… might drop some money on it too!

amayseng says:

Sergio is talking some smack, said the other day Cotto is gonna get slaughtered. I dig it. show some emotion Sergio.

Sergio ain't scared to talk some sh*t! Remember all that crap he was saying to Chavez? “I will break his face a thousand times” or something like that. “His dad is going to need a DNA test to recognize him.”

Go on, Serg!!

This matchup could be intriguing. Sergio's game is unorthodox but pretty straight forward. Stand with your hands down on your front foot, invite punches and counter. Though he has some versatility and can do different things, that is essentially how he throws down.

Miguel Cunto can attack in a variety of ways and in different rhythms. He can definitely give Martinez to think about. Also, though Sergio is bigger, he doesn't use his size as an advantage.

What I don't like, however, is that Cotto/Cunto likes to catch shots on his gloves, inviting combinations on that easy-bruising mug of his. Cotto, remember, gets busted up from blocking shots. Easiest bruising black man of all time, probably.

Also, should nebulous Sergio to the ropes, Sergio will fight back on the inside — and fight back well!

Martinez, in addition, is a heavy puncher. Cotto was dropped or rocked badly by a 147-pound Mayweather, a 150-pound Judah, a 135-pound Corley, a 148-pound Pacquiao. This light Torres dude also knocked him down at 140, don't know his fight night weight though. I'm sure I've left some out.

If he gets hurt by these guys, imagine what Martinez can do? Unlike these cats, Sergio can get over Cotto's survival savvy and finish the job.

Going to be fascinating.

Radam G says:

M Cotto got drop by those guys because of weight drainage. He won't be drop by Sergio. But he will drop and likely kayo Sergio in the middle rounds. Sergio's bluff is not ruff. Against Miguel, he has put himself in at least one handcuff. Holla!

Radam, I gotta just put you on the spot here:

I am a huge Cotto fan and I profess that often. However, as bad as I want to pull for my dude, I think Sergio is going to dang near push him to retirement. The reason I feel this way is the following:

1. In most physical categories that matter in a match, Sergio wins and wins easily. Height, length, weight, and more than likely strength.

2. Sergio's footwork, although not as slick as some think, is better than Cotto's

3. Sergio is eon's faster.

4. Sergio I believe possesses an edge in power.

5. Sergio is fighting at a weight class his body would be much more accustomed to.

6. Cotto bleeds and bruises before walking to the ring. Sergio could get a TKO and not have to throw a ton of punches.

There are a few other advantages that Sergio has but you get my point. Now I do believe that Cotto has the better corner, astuteness at body punching and the MSG crowd behind him.

Now with all that said, Mr G you have been touting the fact that you think Cotto will win and almost win easily. So I ask of you, increase my faith!!!!, make me believe!!!!!!. Convince me and several others on this board of why Cotto wins. I am all ears (or computer screen I guess). What do you see that I don't?

amayseng says:

I think RG has some inside info on how Cottos camp is going.

Fact is though, that Cotto was hurt by Floyd, who is a buzzing puncher but not a puncher like Sergio.

Sergio hit Cintron so hard Cintron called timeout in a boxing match and thought he was concussed by an elbow .

Also the Pwill knockdowns and Freaking KO of the year, decade….

Just as important Sergio hits hard enough to keep a young, vibrant and big 190lb JR off of him for 11 rounds before tiring a bit and getting careless.

Cotto is 155 prob and is ALL left hook.

deepwater2 says:

Who would win between cotto vs Martin Murray ?

Radam G says:

It is all good, The Good Doctor. Sometimes you cannot convince anyone of the reality of the actuality. M-Co is putting Sergio to sleep in likely the middle rounds.

Sergio's knee will tweak, and he is a great football ($o¢¢€r) player at the end of his peak. Dude is an athletic freak, not a boxing geek. For M-Co, he will be meek.

He is going to get BEAT! M-Co is going to pound him like the late, great Smokin' Joe Frazier use to do slaughterhouse meat. Holla!

Skibbz says:

Murray is training hard these days, but Cotto has a lot of tough experience.. But it'll come down to size I think. Murray is 6ft with 72″ reach.. Then again I keep thinking of who they've each been in with and Cotto's resume is a whole lot better than Murray's.. Maybe Cotto loses that could happen.. wouldn't be happy with a catch weight though

The Shadow says:

I don't see it. I. Just don't see it.

Like I've said in a previous thread, once the brutal molestation has reached it's violent climax, the June 7 epitaph shall read:

[I]Here lies Miguel Cutto: flat on his back with his legs in the air.[/I]

Who: Maravilla Martinez. How: Molestation. When: Round 8. Shadow don't tell no lie.

When it's all said and done, Daddy Martinez will wear yet another cheap plastic Burger King crown, as per Argentinian customs (apparently). Miguel, by gruesome contrast, will look like he wore a crown of thorns.

The Shadow says:

In fact, I predict, should he survive his June 7 date with destiny, Miguel will join his cousin Carlos Cotto's pro wrestling stable in Caguas.

Instead of taking constant punches or taking on malevolent Mexican fighters, the Cottos united will tag team vs. “Lucha Libres” and other Mexican masked men doing jumping jacks and backflips.

Wow that would be a bizarre turn of career if you ask me. Then again if the pay is good and work easy..

amayseng says:

As Cotto will be loading up on his left hook all night Sergio will be cuffed in position to block it while throwing his own left.

I will take Sergio's left hand all day long.

The Knee will not play a part in this fight unless it tears during the fight.

I am telling you, Sergio will NOT be skating around on it like old times, he will keep the tension and torque to a minimal and stand his ground and sit down on getting Cotto out of there.

RG thinks Sergio is gonna try to fight like the old Sergio fleeing and skating, that knee will NOT handle it and Sergio will know this in training camp, his therapists and doctors will explain this and he will need adjustments.

His adjustment and fight plan , if his camp has any brains and listens, will be to stay center of the ring, sit down and bang Cotto out of there.

It will be his only measure of escape, my friend.

Lol I love how you capitalized 'The Knee.' I think your observation is spot on. And why would he run from Cotto anyway? Junior was bigger, stronger more powerful. Cotto is neither.

deepwater2 says:

Shadow you have some personal issues against cotto man. Thats graphic stuff. Did cotto give you attitude when you met him like he did with Martinez . I see a close fight with either guy having a shot. The Sergio that beat Paul Williams would ko cotto. The Sergio that fought Murray will probably get stopped.

Radam G says:

For the umpteen time, Sergio Martinez is getting knocked out. He won't be able to handle the pop and crack of M-Co's jab, stab and hook. Pathetic, SM is going to look. Holla!

Lol come on dude, I'm just being facetious. Have no problems with him at all.

Besides, I don't see what I said that could be taken as personal at all? I think he's gonna get his a** kicked in the fashion I described, metaphorically speaking, get flattened and cut up.

What do you find graphic about it? That he's gonna get cut up? Margarita did worse to him than what I described.

Finally, I don't incorporate personal opinion or emotion or any sort of nonsense like that into my assessment of a matchup. That's foolish. And you should know by now that I keep it as straight as it gets.

It was in pure fun. Plastic crown and crown of thorns? That's funny. Especially because its true.

Don't believe me? See for yourself.

I apologize if I offended anyone. But reality is graphic, my friend.

It's all good but I just think the c word is vulgar and I dont like headstone references . I was at the mago fight and it just leaves a bad impression. Maybe it's just me . Either way keep up the good posts .

Sorry about that…it was just a crude attempt at poking fun at how Sergio feels about his bitchy requests, like he's some empress, and the fact that he bleeds so frequently it is as if he menstruates.

I have changed it to “Cutto.” Sorry again, didn't mean to offend anyone. It's boxing, it's dirty and crude where vulgar language is quite colloquial.

Also the epitaph remark was a reference to his career that will be a memory, opening up for the birth of another one as a pro wrestler with his cousin Carlos in Caguas.

Not that he will die personally. I have seen people die before, I do not poke fun at that.

But that's not an excuse to be offensive, which wasn't my intent (thought my facetiousness came across). It was all in good fun, even if it was my fun alone….

He's still getting molested, though.

Amayseng and The Good Doctor broke down perfectly why it will it go they will it will. Gentlemen, I consider thee nostradamic prophets of pugilism.

Carmine Cas says:

I think this layoff has helped Maravilla (or at least I'm hoping) the knee will be more stable and it will allow him to cut and turn Cotto. If it's just his meniscus that was torn he should be fine.

Mhmm I think we discussed this previously somewhere else. I think the knee will prove to be much less of an issue than it is being played up to be. Cotto best not be believing it either, for if he is he's gonna be in for a shock when Maravilla is working it. He'll be wondering how on earth SM got his movement back and before he knows it the left hook will have him on the canvas.
