Hopefully it will be posted on YouTube right after it's over.

I expect Cotto to utilize his boxing skills more instead of trading punches. That's what got him in trouble in the first fight

The problem is, Cotto has a difficult time fighting going backwards. Some guys are excellent at counter-punching while luring pressure fighters in. That isn't Cotto's game.

He can be a good boxer, but he needs to stand his ground to do so. Margarito makes it almost impossible to stand your ground and to lean into your punches, because the guy is in your chest for 12 rounds.

I wouldn't be all that shocked to see an outcome similar to the first fight, because I'm not sure that Cotto can hurt Margarito and Tony just does not stop coming.

However, I'm pulling for Cotto, obviously, as any hardcore boxing fan should. What Margarito did was unforgivable.

So, I will give a tentative WAR Cotto.

It looks like things are running a little later than normal. It may be close to midnight before the main event starts.

Goddamn I hope Cotto wrecks this fool. Seems like he just hasn't been the same since the last time he was in the ring with Margarito's illegal brickfists.

Man, Rios is covered in Murray's blood. This is getting ugly.

I can't wait for the main event. I hope Margarito folds Cotto in half again.

He needs to move up in the Junior Welterweight or Welterweight Division. I thought he's gonna lose this fight because he hasn't eaten in the last 4 days.
