A matchup of two future Professional Boxing Hall Of Famers was finalized on Thursday as Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31 KOs) will challenge “The Ring” and WBC Middleweight Champion, 38 year old Sergio Martinez (51-2, 28 KOs). The fight will take place in Madison Square Garden and will be available via HBO Pay Per View.
The fight will take place on the same day as the annual Puerto Rican day parade in New York City. Cotto is attempting to win a world title in his fourth weight class. Cotto is attempting to knock off the highest ranked middleweight in the sport according to the only rankings I pay attention to which can be found here (courtesy of ESPN.com’s Dan Rafael).
