WBC middleweight champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez, opened up his Miami training camp yesterday and held an intense, two plus hour open media workout before a throng of media ahead of his June 7 world title defense against three-division world champion Miguel Cotto.
“This training camp has been tremendously efficient. Everything has exceeded all of my expectations,” stated Martinez. “The Miami weather and atmosphere has made this his most memorable camp in recent history. I couldn’t be happier with the way things have gone thus far. I feel great. The time off has allowed my injuries to properly and fully heal and my entire body has never felt better.
“I know that Cotto is working very hard for this fight with Freddie Roach but there is no doubt in my mind that this will definitely be his farewell fight to what was a great career.”
Martinez and Cotto’s pay-per-view clash will take place in New York City’s famed Madison Square Garden.
