Cotto Vs. Martinez Madison Square Garden; Still a Martinez Fan
Investorideas.com Updates Sports Directory for June
New York, NY- Point Roberts, WA - June 12, 2014 (www.investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com staff: Investorideas.com, a global news source covering leading sectors Including sports stocks issues commentary and video after attending the recent World Championship Boxing event Migeul Cotto Vs. Sergio Martinez at Madison Square Garden, New York City.
As a hopeful Martinez fan attending, it was heartbreaking to watch the warrior come down more than once in the first round. Cotto, now trained by Freddie Roach aggressively dominated the first round and set the stage for the ten round TKO win.
It was an impressive show of boxing talent for Cotto in a room full of chanting fans for the Puerto Rican fighter. Apparently the stadium was filled with over 21,000 fans and it was obvious we were massively outnumbered as we sat with the light blue Argentina flag.
As we hit the streets of New York Sunday and walked through parts of the Puerto Rican Day parade, it was obvious how the Cotto win had incited pride by becoming the first Puerto Rican boxer to win world titles in four weight divisions.
Always appreciative of a great fighter and talent, hats off to Cotto but I have to recognize one of my personal favorites, Sergio Martinez for being the warrior that he is and going ten rounds at that level. Salud!
I was hoping for a fight similar to his match against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, where we saw the audience pleasing cocky Martinez dance around at lightning speed, hands down challenging his opponent. Instead I wanted him to keep his hands up in the Cotto match, warding off the powerful punches that resulted in a win of all ten rounds.
Greg Harrison of Harrison Boxing, a trainer in Canada said, “After seeing the recent Cotto-Martinez fight I've decided there are three parts to this fight. First, Cotto fought a sensational fight. He looked possibly better than I've seen him ever look. He got back to what he's good at with the left hook, rolled punches nicely and walked down Martinez for the bulk of the fight. Second and equally as important was all the Martinez factors leading up to the fight. He wasn't willing to make any excuses so I'll lay out a few for him. Between the shoulder, hand and most him importantly his knees, he most definitely wasn't the Sergio of old; the one who moved for 12 rounds and caught people trying to catch him. Seven months on crutches for a 39 year old that relied on moving is a death sentence. I'm not sure any amount I warm up would have helped him in this fight with his recent history. Third is what the future holds. Cotto has a great win under his belt and if he stays at middle weight it will be much harder to hold the belt than it was to win it. I'm hoping to see him try but don't bet your money on him in a big name middle weight bout. As for Sergio I truly hope pride doesn't get the best of him. It's a terrible way to end your career but it's even worse to hold on and try again. Let it go and be proud of what you accomplished. Thanks for the memories."
