By Alon Calinao Dy:  WBC middle champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 2 KO's) is going to defend his crown against Puerto Rican boxing icon Miguel Cotto on June 7 at the Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Until now, Cotto believes that he belongs to class A fighter since he already fought undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. and former pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao. But unfortunately, he lost both fights.

Martinez, on the other hand, was offended by Cotto's comment on HBO face off. He promised to derail Cotto's professional boxing career. He further said that this would be his biggest mistake to fight him.

I can't wait anymore this exciting bout to happen on Saturday night. Cotto has a chance to prove to everyone, especially to his countrymen, that he is a better boxer than Martinez.

But personally, I do not think Cotto has an edge and can handle the powerful shots coming from Martinez. I think Martinez is going to win this fight since he is naturally bigger, quicker, and stronger than Cotto. Well, let's all see who is going to raise his hands on Saturday night.
