Argentina's Sebastian "Iron" Lujan is not the kind of boxer to hold a grudge. The tough Argentine brawler is training at the Otomi Ceremonial Center of Temoaya, Mexico - and he's working side by side with former opponent Antonio "The Tijuana Tornado" Margarito. Margarito and Lujan fought in 2005, with the Mexican slugger securing a tenth round stoppage.  In one of the more infamous injuries in the ring, the fight was stopped when Lujan's ear was nearly beaten off his head from Margarito's hard punches. The ear was partially hanging off and required several months of rehab to fully heal. 

Both boxers are preparing for their commitments on December 3rd at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Both fights will be carried by HBO pay-per-view.

Luján (38-5-2-1, 24 KOs) will face undefeated American Mike Jones (25-0, 19 KOs) in a welterweight world title eliminator. The winner will secure a shot at IBF champion Andre Berto. Meanwhile, Margarito (38-7-0-1, 27 KOs) will face Miguel Cotto (36-2, 29 KOs) in the main event for the WBA's junior middleweight title. Margarito stopped Cotto in the eleventh round of their initial 2008 meeting.

Margarito is one of the top fighters even if he is past his best, I'm sure he is a good sparring partner. And there's things he does thats similar to Mike Jones. Of course he's not an exact replica of Jones but he is good sparring. I'm sure they bring in many different fighters for sparring so it...

[QUOTE=Fresno]cotto did some major damage to mannys ear[/QUOTE] bursting an ear drum and having the actual top half of the ear falling off are two very different things. but you are correct
