Ever wonder what they’re really trying to say?
Let me cut through the crap.
Excerpt: Sergio Martinez would love to face Miguel Cotto
By Ryan Burton
“Martinez's promoter Lou DiBella added, "Cotto is a true warrior who doesn't shy away from anyone. Plus the fight could be at 155 so even if Cotto lost he would keep his belt. That way he could still have big fights versus Chavez Jr. or Margarito. Those fights might even be bigger if Cotto lost because fans may view the fights with Chavez and Margarito as more even. If Cotto won, he would be an even bigger star." ”
Translating: Lou DiBella
Translation: “"Cotto has repeatedly made the mistake of fighting guys shouldn’t have and we’re hoping he’ll do it again for us. We can all “get to the money” with this fight at 155lbs so even after Sergio beats the living day lights out of Cotto he would still have his 154lbs belt. That way he could still “get to the money” against an unproven kid with a big name like Chavez Jr. or a guy like Margarito who’s been pummeled just enough that Cotto might have a shot in a rematch. Those fights might even be bigger if Cotto lost because fans may view the fights with Chavez and Margarito as more even. If Cotto won, he would be an even bigger star."”
The Message: “Let’s get to the money”
