Today, get ready for the big PPV showdown with the live fight weigh-ins. You can catch a live stream of the Cotto vs Martinez weigh-ins right here at Bloody Elbow starting at 2:30 p.m. ET / 11:30 a.m. PT. For this fight, the two men have agreed on a catchweight of 159 pounds, just one pound shy of the Middleweight limit.
Weight is an interesting factor in this fight. Martinez is the longtime Middleweight kingpin, and has been fighting comfortably at 160 for some time. Meanwhile, Cotto is making the jump up to the division, having competed previously in divisions ranging from 140 - 154 pounds. If he pulls off the win here, he will be the first Puerto Rican fighter in history to win a world title in four different weight classes. It will be very interesting to see how the two men look on the scales tomorrow, as this could be a big factor in Sunday's fight.
Join us here at Bloody Elbow for Cotto vs. Martinez results, discussion, and live fight coverage this Saturday, June 7.
