Durability

Durability can be measured differently according to the style of each fighter. In terms of Cotto-Martinez, durability has more to do with punch resistance. Cotto has a better chin and, because of his style, is more used to absorbing and assimilating punishment in close. Martinez's resistance, on the other hand, appears to have decreased, perhaps due to his injury issues, in recent fights.


Advantage: Cotto
