It also suggests that they think Martinez is washed up with one foot out the door toward retirement. Freddie Roach likely think he got an old fighter in front of him ala Shane and Oscar but even at this stage styles make fights and Cotto won't be able to handle the size, speed, and ring intelligence of Sergio.
yes.
it would be silly of him to get knocked out before hand

Cotto can't handle his style, Trout showed that

Hold up, Trout and Martinez have the same style now? Surely you aren't just using them both being southpaws as relation to their styles?

someone else might have beaten martinez and there goes that payday. he had to take this fight now, the money is too good and even if he loses nobody will care because they will just say he never had a chance to begin with.

Martinez tunes him up with ease. Joke of a fight.
