Miguel-Cotto-spaceBoxing-400x234 731a0“To paraphrase Mark Twain, the rumors of Sergio's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Boxing media and fans tend to base a person's ability — and sometimes full body of work — on just one performance. Now Martinez is shot. But Cotto is on fire!! 12 months ago, people said just the opposite. Go through history and you will some of the greatest were written off prior to reaching their peak. Likewise, complete and utter scrubs were made into world beaters before they were exposed. “Believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see. Matchmakers control the zeitgeist.” —The Shadow counsels the long view

Money May fought a club-fighting-like humbug in “The Cali Ghost.” And a hyped-up B fighter in Canelo. The promotions were grand to get eyeballs and easy impressionable minds behind those PPV screens. Because the live gates didn’t sell out.” –Radam isn’t sold on this being the year of Money May

“It must be said that even a wounded, war torn Martinez is still a more dangerous threat than Canelo for Cotto. The powers that be must be expecting a phenomenal turnout.” —Brown Sugar says that Martinez is a tougher out for Cotto than Canelo
