Margarito: I'm Looking For Revenge, Bet on Me To Win!

By Jhonny Gonzalez

On December 3rd in New York's Madison Square Garden, Antonio Margarito will be looking for payback for everything that happened in his career over the last three years. From his big defeats to Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley, to the handwraps controversy lingering over his 2008 TKO win over Miguel Cotto - the Mexican star is eager to place everything in order when he faces Cotto for a second time with the WBA 154-pound title on the line.

"[When I beat Cotto] it changed my life. [Cotto] has not changed much since then. I think I want to box him , but with my heart I can't do it. I'm coming for revenge for everything that has happened. I know I can continue my career and still go far. After I lost to Mosley, I do not apologize. I struggled hard to make weight, and when I went into the fight I was very dehydrated and there were many problems," Margarito told Sal Rodriguez.

"And then came the fight with Pacquiao, which I thought I could win, but I had a bad strategy [in the fight], and he's an excellent fighter and it will be difficult for someone to repeat what he already accomplished. I'm pleased when [people] to tell me that I'm finished. I know Miguel Cotto is back up in the betting, and I hope that Mexicans bet on me as they did three years ago, because we are going to win."

[QUOTE=LegendOfLink]And he was never a one punch knockout out artist when it came to elite fighters. Cotto isn't going to let him hit him as much as Margarito did in the first fight. I'm expecting much better defense from Cotto and that will be the difference in this fight. I have Cotto by decisi...

[QUOTE=freedom213]One thing I havent seen Cotto work much in these vids is the jab. He better not go too far away from that punch, just work off it more, be more active.[/QUOTE] All I seen is one video and yes I didn't see them working on the jab too much but those are just short videos that ...

[quote=fanatico]Cotto, has all to loose. His new trainer has no clue how to prepare him for this fight. Cotto's biggest mistake was to let Steward go.[/quote] One thing I havent seen Cotto work much in these vids is the jab. He better not go too far away from that punch, just work off it more...
