Miguel Cotto's only chance to win this fight is to cut off the ring and get to Sergio Martinez body, everyone knows that, but so far in camp against the shorter and faster Chris Pearson, sources tell us that Cotto is heavy and can't keep Pearson in front of him, the only time he gets into his zone, is when Pearson just goes to the ropes. I'm not dumping on Miguel, he has outboxed Pearson in the middle of the ring at times which was a shock to those around. Our source said he didn't attend every session, because it's really been a hush hush camp, but from what he has seen Cotto needs to improve on cutting off the ring because Martinez isn't going to just lay on the ropes for him.
"Martinez is slick and cagey, he's nothing to take lightly, it's draining just trying to keep up with Martinez pace, Cotto has to find a way to keep the tempo at his pace. Here he is fighting at Chris pace unless Chris just let Cotto lead, which isn't going to help him, because Martinez won't let you have anything."
