The signs were all there. It was an easy pick. Martin Murray beat Sergio . After being on crutches for 7 months he could not expect to beat a healthy powerful Cotto at MSG. Down 3 times in the first round. No 3 knockdown rule in effect ? This is a present from Cotto to Trinidad at the Hall of Fame . A tribute to Puerto Rican boxing. Let's see how the rest of the fight goes. How are the knees? Is the brace working?
I read the title D2 last night (early morning I should say) and I couldn't help but chuckle. Boy I bet you were celebrating after the third knockdown!
After being on a crutch for 7 months...
I sure was . Everyone thought I was crazy for picking Cotto. I was even happier when I said Cotto might carry Sergio to the 9th round and stop him and that happened ! That was a lucky guess or was it? Haha. I knew Sergio was toast as soon as the first exchange happened. After the Martin Murray fight and the layoff I thought everyone else was crazy for picking Sergio .
