Where the Sidewalk Ends: Miguel Cotto Chases History Against Sergio Martinez

****

Madison Square Garden will be rocking harder than a Led Zeppelin concert from the 1970s when Puerto Rican superstar Miguel Cotto challenges chic Argentine Sergio Martinez for the middleweight championship of the world on Saturday night.

Stoic as ever, Cotto has remained unruffled during the pre-fight buildup while Martinez has made one stuffy pronouncement after another. It takes an outsize ego to be a world-class prizefighter, and Martinez is nearly as puffed up as Evita Peron was during her heyday. No matter. These two unique fighters—one, Martinez, who has built a glittering career after years spent toiling in Spain; the other, Cotto, who has become a box-office star by sheer professionalism—will meet to settle their differences, both real and imagined, before a sold-out crowd in the most famous arena in America. Read “Where the Sidewalk Ends: Miguel Cotto Chases History Against Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez” on REMEZCLA.
