Cotto vs. Martinez
June 7, 2014 // 9 p.m. ET (HBO PPV)
Madison Square Garden, New York


By Bernardo Pilatti

In one of the most anticipated fights of 2014, Sergio Martinez will defend his middleweight championship against Miguel Cotto at New York's Madison Square Garden at a catchweight of 159 pounds. At 39, Martinez returns after more than a year removed from the ring due to hand and knee injuries. Cotto will fight for the second time under the guidance of trainer Freddie Roach, who seems to have contributed to the renovation of the Puerto Rican pugilist. Will Cotto repeat the great performance of his last fight against Delvin Rodriguez? Will Martinez be fully recovered from his injuries? We will find out on Saturday.
