Miguel Cotto: The Pressure is on Margarito, Not Me

According to WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto, the bulk of the rematch pressure is falling on the shoulders of Antonio Margarito. While Margarito knocked Cotto out in the eleventh round of their 2008 meeting, the Mexican boxer was involved in a serious scandal the following year.

Prior to facing Shane Mosley in January 2009, Margarito's handwraps were confiscated after a plaster-like substance was discovered by Mosley's trainer. Margarito's boxing license was revoked for over a year, and the win over Cotto was now being questioned. Experts, and fans, continue to speculate if Margarito used tampered handwraps against Cotto.

The rematch, on December 3rd at New York's Madison Square Garden, will answer every question.

"After my loss to Margarito, there came the scandal with the bandages, and he was suspended for over a year while I stayed in the public eye, and in my next fight I reclaimed my title. He feels the pressure going into this fight, not me. One matures. You live and you learn from what happens in life, and I have not lived in vain since 2008 to the present. I know this defeat will motivate me going into this fight," Cotto told Carlos Gonzalez.

[QUOTE=Fooly Cooly]You're a bum ass poster man. Pacquaio fucked Cotto up worse. I don't remember Tony getting dropped twice and running from the 5th round on. ON the contrary, Tony, despite getting tagged at will and having his eye busted kept coming forward trying to whoop Ping Ping till ...

[QUOTE=spyvsspy]Haha this shows how much you don't know. I lived in PR when Calderon had his last 10 or so fights and nobody really cared for him. The bars giving the fights were empty...even the venue where the fight was being held only contained the hard core fans. PR's like a boxer who bang...
