Cotto enters this fight in his best condition, with no physical problems. He's excited about the rebirth of his career and pushed by the ambition of becoming the first Puerto Rican champion in four different divisions. His opponent is quite the opposite as Martinez's recent physical problems seem too fresh and they have put a shadow over his possible performance. Martinez has admitted he still feels pain on his knee after surgery and the jury is still out regarding how that affects him.

Advantage: Cotto
