Given that we now know how and why "plasterman" margarito was able to dismember his pre-Mosley opponents, I have no doubt that Miguel Cotto will vindicate his first loss. The Tijuana "plaster" tornado has been exposed.

I think (and I hope) Cotto wins this one in a close fight. This should be a very entertaining fight.

I say Margarito. Reason-seems Cottos chin is shot! He at a young age seems washed up. I hope i'm way wrong though, love his style and heart.

Cotto will win with smart boxing and movement...just like he was schooling Rito for the 1st 6 rounds of their fight.....

I've been a huge fan of his since the Ricardo Torres fight and have seen every fight since then...and i can tell you this..that night was the best i have ever seen him..until the 7th round when all of ritos punches started to bust open his face,his mouth,his nose,his ears,his eyes...i dont know for sure but i believe Rito was loaded that night and it took a few rounds for the gloves to soften...before the 7th..Cotto was boxing circles around him..landing 3-4 punch combos and ducking the counters...beautiful boxing..

He's going to do it again..and this time Rito wont have his help..

Cotto in a late TKO. He wants revenge..he wants blood..



Now with that being said...i havent seen Cotto the same ever since..hes lost his explosiveness and aggression....i havent seen the old Cotto since that night..we saw glimpses vs Pacquiao but thats it..i hope we havent seen the best of Miguel Cotto.

When I started this thread Emanuel Steward was Cotto's trainer. I just read yesterday that Cotto got rid of Steward and has hired a Cuban trainer by the name of Luis Diaz Benitez. Never heard of this trainer. Anyone here ever heard of him? Has he produced any world champs?

Not to sound biased but, Cuban trainers and Cuban boxers are great at the 3 round Olympic Amateur level. Get them out of that environment and they don't seem to do so good.

Ugh shiet!

Default Cotto wins this one

I don't believe Margarito is a good fighter. He's mediocre at best. This is why he cheated. Cotto is by far the better boxer. He's faster, more agile, and has good power in his shots. He's not a one-punch knockout artist, but he wears a fighter down.

I think Cotto will hit Margarito repeatedly, beat him to the punch often, and cause the fight to be stopped. Margarito can take a great deal of punishment, but he hasn't the speed or the talent to beat Cotto. He knew that in their first fight, which is why he cheated.

100% agreed, A_Lexus. I wouldn't surprised to see Margacheato get dropped from a wicked body shot.

I hope you guys are right. But, I now have my doubts given he changed trainers. I haven't bothered to look up info on this Benitez guy. Again, how many professional world champions has he produced?

I agree. I too was enjoying and very happy with Cotto's boxing that night up until about the 7th or 8th round. That's probably when the "plaster of margarito" solidified enough to give him the edge.

Cotto's corner should have margarito's gloves x-rayed and dog-sniffed before the next fight.
