The anticipated rematch is tonight. Their first fight was quiet some time ago, July 26 2008. In their first, Miguel Cotto looked good early on by landing clean shots on Antonio Margarito. Margarito hung in with Cotto and turned the tide later on. Now the subject comes about did Margarito have plaster in his hand wraps? This debate has been going on for years.
My opinion is that he did have something illegal in his hand wraps that night. Regardless, I still think Antonio Margarito is a great fighter. He shows no mercy and has the heart of a champion in the ring. Although tonight I think it will be Miguel Cotto’s night. I think he will do enough damage to Margarito for the referee to call a TKO. Manny Pacquiao did damage to Margarito’s face in their fight, and Cotto wants to do the same.
If Antonio Margarito is the victor tonight, he will silence the critics for the time being. Also, maybe he will wish to avenge a loss to Paul Williams, challenge Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, or give Saul Alvarez a big fight. If Miguel Cotto is the victor tonight, maybe he will want a rematch against Manny Pacquiao. I like both fighters, I did wish them good luck tonight!
