Margarito Stops Cotto In The 11th Round Of A Classic!

26.07.08 - Jim Amato: WHAT A FIGHT ! Miguel Cotto outboxed a plodding Antonio Margarito early but Margarito got stronger as the fight wore on and finally battered Cotto into submission at 2:05 of round eleven. This was a classic that lived up to and even surpassed expectations. Margarito is a monster. That is the best way I can describe him. Cotto landed many jabs and several clean shots but they just seemed to bounce off Margarito. Not once did Margarito show any sign of being hurt. Cotto's nose started bleeding early and soon there was a cut over his eye..

Blood was coming from his mouth and eventually the eye got worse. Margarito really busted him up.

Although Margarito has a different style he reminds me a bit of Carlos Monzon. He is big and strong like Monzon and just seems immune to pain. This ended up just being a classic beat down.
