Predictions

Dan Rafael

Love this historical matchup. If Martinez's right knee is close to healthy his size and speed will be too much and it'll be a knockout win. If Martinez's knee is bad, Cotto by knockout.

Brian Campbell

Martinez's age and injuries should keep Cotto competitive. But if Sergio's knee holds up, expect his size and speed to produce a late TKO in an action fight.

Bernardo Pilatti

A diminished Martinez without his usual leg speed won't be able to stop Cotto's aggressive pressure. Cotto should win by stoppage in the later rounds.
