Sergio Martinez will once again have to dig deep to maintain his Pound for Pound status because in his last fight against Martin Murray, some boxing experts and fans gave Murray the nod even though Martinez was awarded the unanimous decision victory.
Now Martinez will go into hostile territory to defend his middleweight titles against a gamed and confident Cotto who has found the fountain of youth as he looked like the old power-punching destroyer of old in his last fight as he destroyed his last opponent inside of 4 rounds.
Cotto will look to accomplish what only a handful of fighters have accomplished in professional boxing come June 7; and that is win a world title in 4 different weight divisions.
