Cotto-Margarito II: Fight Back On? 10/1 and 12/3 on Hold

By Chris LaBate

After all looked lost, we could see a rematch between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito in 2011. According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, Margarito has undergone cataract surgery to repair what was considered a career-threatening injury to his right eye, which he suffered during last November's decision loss to Manny Pacquiao.

Margarito's promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank, told the paper that his boxer is scheduled to receive final clearance in two weeks to begin sparring around July 1, and Arum has two dates on hold for a possible pay-per-view rematch with Cotto - Oct. 1 and Dec. 3. Margarito expects that he'll be ready to fight Cotto by the end of the year.

"I'm not closing the door on [fighting] this year," Margarito told The Times. "Without a doubt, I believe I'm ready to fight someone like him. I'll fight anyone as soon as the doctor says it's OK to fight."

Margarito handed Cotto the first loss of his career with an eleven round TKO in July of 2008.

Margarito will get badly hurt this time. He's finished at the top, he's damaged goods. Pacquiao took his soul.
