This is a fight I WILL be buying. So far I only bought 2 fights this year....Ortiz/May....Dawson.Hopkins (undercard was beast) Cotto must outbox him and not try to take him out early. Cotto's amature coach needs to use Brother Nazim Richardson's game plan when Mosley went up against Marg's but tweak it a bit so it can fit Cotto's style and so he won't be uncomfortable. Their fight fight was a classic despite the controversy. I hope Cotto finishes up Manny's job and end his career. I watched Manny vs Margarito only for that fact of knowing that who was going to get their clocks cleaned and boy was it cleaned.
DECEMBER THE 3RD NEEDS TO HURRY THE HELL UP!!! and oh I forgot....Bam Bam is on this under car....WAR RIOS
Let's not forget about the Delvin Rodriguez and Pawel Wolak rematch! Wooo! That shit is gonna be nasty! They are at the point where both of them has the chance end the other's career...since Manny had his way with the both of them. I've ordered 6 PPVs this year, and I was sure to order this one...so here we go!

I'm pumped for this fight also. Margarito looks guilty as hell when the handwraps are brought up. Cotto is not only a good fighter, but a class act. He just can't let his emotions get to heavy in this fight and be brought into a war with the bigger guy. Margarito has the better chin and and longer reach I believe so Cotto has to pick his spots. I don't see Cotto stopping Margarito, but that would be awesome. I see a close win for Cotto. Maybe even disputed to bring a trilogy fight next year. Go Cotto!!!
This post alone, has got me even more hyped about this fight! To be honest, I do think the size had a lot to do with it. Margarito was one of those "walk around at about 180 lbs" type of welterweights, and Cotto was just somewhat settling into the weight. Shit, Margarito was sucking those punches up and made Cotto's punches seem like a 140 lber was throwing them.
