Anyone else excited about this fight? These really are the two guys that scared Mayweather into retirement. Both are top notch welterweights with tons of talent.

I will be rooting for Margarito but think Cotto may be the best 147 pounder in the world right now.

This is an absolutely awesome match! I always wait for the replays on HBO a week later, so I'll have to avoid any spoilers in between.

I can't pick a winner, but if I absolutely had to, I'd pick Cotto. Great fight either way

I can't wait for this match. These are two great fighters. I would have to give the edge to Cotto, but it could go either way. I like this division with those two, Berto and Williams.

Margarito didn't scare anybody into retirement dude lost like 5 fights...Cotto probably scared Mayweather tho'...I'm rooting for Cotto with those body punches he throws Talk about devastating. However Cotto is susceptible to over hand rights.

Default cotto

This should be a war, but i see Cotto winning in like 6-7 rounds. Margarito tends to throw wide shots, he will get caught and fall. I would like to see Cotto vs Dela hoya, I feel Cotto also beats hoya.

I beg to differ. His losses were early in his career. His loss to that tall Paul kid was a fluke. Mayweather wouldnt fight Margarito, Delahoya wont fight him. Dude is a monster, you'll see tonight.

I like Cotto but you know, its only 2:20 so the fight wont start for a few hours, think I'll head to Vegas to put some money on Margarito.

Boy, I should be a Vegas oddsmaker. If there is one thing I can do well is pick the fights.

Great fight! I thought Cotto might have enough power behind his boxing skills to slow Margarito's attack. Margarito was relentless.

I'm not sure if it was a fluke, but I think Margarito would beat Williams right now. Williams has a long reach and used that to frustrate Margarito with a constant jab. Margarito gave up too many early rounds. He was coming on late in the fight, but it was too late for the decision. Williams was hanging on by the end though.

Had Cotto winning, but it was good to see his ass knocked out for a change. Margarito has a lot of heart because those blows Cotto was throwing was nooo joke. Cotto is a body puncher and he was aiming at the face. Margarito has a great chin.
