I still think margarito will win because he is the bigger fighter

Having the reach advantage he can allow cotto to come to him, and make cotto spend more energy trying to close the gap

Remember Margarito is close to six feet, and cotto is like five six or five seven

It's too early to tell. I've got to see them closer to the fight and think about it. Cotto was by far the superior boxer in their fight, but he couldn't hurt Magarito. Despite his speed and superior boxing skills, he never could land that punch that Margarito didn't see. Margarito on the other hand, seems extremely heavy-handed, and has a great chin. He's intense and gets his rhythm as the fight wears on. Cotto would somehow have to increase his own power and make weight, while Magarito beats himself (maybe weakened from trying to make weight after letting himself go) in order for Cotto to have a better chance in their second fight.

Margarito is a monster though.

I agree with this assessment. I also think Margarito has a mental edge now. Cotto fought a good fight, hit him with everything he had, and was still broken down to the point of taking a knee and giving in.

I don't know about this one again- I would love to see a rematch but Margarito's face- not just his chin- his face is like a brick wall. If Cotto wants to win this fight he has to land big body shots that he's known for.
