  1. What a sad, sad ending (I hope) to a great boxer’s career. There is no doubt in my mind that the Sergio of old would have run circles around Miguel Angel. Alas, the champion is no longer the Sergio of old, just old Sergio. His words at the end of the fight proved that he knows how to win and how to lose. A lot of fighters could stand to learn that.

    His place in my personal history of boxing is secure.

  2. I agree with GMan about Martinez’s trainer. I wonder how viewers will rate this fight in five years or even one. It had the pre-fight excitement that surrounds a big event. However, after the opening bell rang (against my expectations) it turned into a non-competitive beat down of a physically depleted man. Two and a half stars (maybe fewer) might be the better score for posterity.

  3. martinez was not the same one who defeated Paul Williams or Pavlik or Chavez Jr or Murray…..if he doesn’t retire he has to change trainer!!

    congratulations to cotto for his performance.

    congratulations to maravilla for his words at the end of the fight.
    TWO GREAT CHAMPIONS!

  4. Not to take away from Cotto but
    danielsan23 is correct in that he is not the same fighter. Though changing trainers will not do a thing for him.

    I too hope Martinez retires.
