Sampson Lewkowicz, the advisor of Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez’s advisor has confirmed that the negotiations for a WBC middleweight fight title defence against Miguel Angel Cotto has come up against some problems.... but he hopes they can continue, and pick up pace in coming days.
Cotto and Martínez could face each other on June 7th, with Madison Square Garden in New York as the venue.
Ever persistent, onward and upward, Sampson who wants the talks to gel and not jam, says he really hopes this fight doesn’t tag itself on to the large list of classics that disintegrated into verbose ashes before their inception. As he laconically wrote on his Twitter account: “I hope the fight between “Maravilla” vs Miguel Cotto doesn’t join the black list in history of fights that never took place."
