Miguel Cotto…. Revenge Is So Sweet!
It’s amazing, when you fight without plaster in your gloves (allegedly), how your true skills can be exposed. Last time Antonio Margarito fought Miguel Cotto, he beat him in an eleven round TKO. It is widely speculated that Margarito gloves were loaded as they were in the pre-fight glove test against ‘Sugar’ Shane Mosley.
However, this time around with legal gloves, Cotto took it to Margarito early and often. With a strong Puerto Rican contingency behind him at Madison Square Garden, Cotto targeted Margarito’s surgically repaired right eye and by the seventh round, Margarito could barely see out of it. With a little confusion to begin the tenth round, the doctors stopped the fight. It was the right thing to do because Margarito could have easily lost his vision for good if this fight were allowed to continue.
With all that said and done, Cotto gains his retribution against the man he feels almost killed his career. This wasn’t just a match for Cotto, he truly does not like or respect Margarito. What’s next for both men we will wait and see, but for this night, Cotto exacted the revenge he was looking for.
