RABZEKHY OF BABILON (PUERTO RICO)
THIS IS THE SAME OLD “STORY”….. WE WANT TO SEE MIGUEL COTTO Vs CANELO . PUERTO RICO Vs MEXICO…..Posted August 18, 2014 5:52 pm
Atleast the Boxing world can look forward to the Great Canelo Alvarez taking on Joshua Clottey in his next Great PPV MegaFlop.. LOLPosted August 18, 2014 1:35 pm
“WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto’s trainer Freddie Roach believes that former WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez was in his prime when Cotto beat him and stopped him in the 10th round last June.”
Whaaaat???? That’s not what Roach was saying before the fight when he was claiming Martinez’s legs were shot.Posted August 18, 2014 10:48 am
Cotto deserves a lot of credit for the win, oddsmakers had him as underdog, he was coming up in weight, Martinez was lineal champ and Cotto did NOT just win he dominated from start to finish and beat Sergio at EVERY facet of the game…Posted August 18, 2014 10:39 am
I think Freddie is having a little bit of fun with that comment
If Martinez v Cotto was five years ago,
Lionhard, 100% correct. Had me in stitches.Posted August 18, 2014 3:44 am
39 and at his best… YUP!
Just like Muhammad Ali was at his best for Larry Holmes. and Sugar Ray Leonard was at his best for Terry Norris.Posted August 18, 2014 3:10 am
That NOT what Roach said BEFORE the fight..
Roach said, “He’s completely shot. He’s trying to BULLSHlT his way through this.” Roach knew damned well that Sergio could barely walk when he got up in the morning — and that the last 2 operations on Martinez’s knees were complete disasters.Posted August 18, 2014 3:04 am
Roach if that’s true then fight Golovkin at 160.Posted August 18, 2014 2:33 am
I can’t say I agree with Roach about Martinez being at his best but many said Cotto wasn’t a middleweight and wasn’t at his best either. In fact I remember So many people had Martinez the favorite b4 the fight bad leg or not. Low & behold Cotto kicks his azz & all of a sudden it was the leg, Martinez is old, etc. Bottom line many people can’t give Cotto his props. It was a great win like it or not against a proven & great middleweight. There will always be haters.Posted August 18, 2014 2:02 am
Hecdog – what about DLH fighting at a weight he hadn’t made in a decade, was he at his best, was Margarito,what about Mosley? Morales has just lost to Zaheer when they Pac cherrypicked him for the rematch.JMM was 39yrs old ripe when he wiped the floor with Pac, they thaught he was done. Roach is a master cherrypicker, period.Posted August 18, 2014 12:13 am
Gentlemen, Freddie Roach, as much as i admire him is 100% wrong on his statement that Sergio Martinez was at his best. No, he wasn’t. Martinez was an old broken shell of himself. In his prime, he destroys Cotto at 160. That fight wouldn’t be close at all. I’m not a Martinez fan at all, but he was a talented fighter in his prime. His legs were gone, he hadn’t fought in over a year, and in his last fight prior to the Cotto fight, he was shot. Sorry Freddie, but you’re wrong.

If Martinez was 100% this fight wouldn’t even be a serious boxing discussion much less a fight that would never take placePosted August 17, 2014 9:11 pm
