When two opponents face off in a boxing ring, stamina controls the inner strength of each. It's the self-respect, heart and hidden engine deep within that controls their determination. Cotto and Martinez have demonstrated that propulsion among their qualities. Cotto, however, is pushed by the possibility of getting a historic belt in a fourth different division. That will drive him even harder to push for the win and avoid fading late.

Advantage: Cotto
