Here is what Martinez had to say, via Elisinio Castillo of notifight.com:
"He should never forget that I'm the champion. He has a lot of demands but I'm the champion. I'll say it, I don't think that he'll last five rounds. I would like to fight Cotto, but he is showing signs that he doesn't want to (fight), by asking for complicated conditions and he does not respect boxing history. I'm ready to knock Cotto out in five or six rounds and I know I will. He can not resist me. Disrespecting me is a very unfortunate thing. He should not forget that I'm the champion," Martinez said.
Heavyweight mandatory challenger Alex Leapai is likely to reject a seven-figure offer from WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko tomorrow to take his title fight to a “purse bid,” reports Grantlee Kieza of heraldsun.com.au. Hoping to being the fight to Australia, Team Leapai has aligned themselves with Russian promoter Vladimir Hrunov, who surprisingly snatched Wlad’s last fight against Alexander Povetkin at a purse bid with a near record $23.2 million bid.
