(Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) By Cameron Gillon: After beating the odds last Saturday night at MSG in New York against the WBC and Ring Magazine Middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-3-2, 28 KO’s), the question now is where does Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32 KO’s) go now and who should he fight in his next bout? I was one of the people that thought Sergio Martinez would emerge victorious last night but obviously I was wrong.
I thought Cotto wouldn’t have enough to beat Sergio, but how he proved me and the other Martinez fans wrong. He controlled the fight from the first punch landed, and no one would of expected him to put Martinez down three times in the 1st round. From then on Martinez was a sitting duck, his legs had gone from the first knockdown and Cotto knew that, and to Sergio Martinez’s credit, he stuck in there and put a hell of a effort up to win the fight despite being in a terrible state.
