Veteran trainer Emanuel Steward expects WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto to avenge his first career loss on December 3rd at New York's Madison Square Garden. Cotto faces Antonio Margarito of Mexico in a long awaited rematch. Margarito stopped Cotto in eleven rounds in 2008. Until recently, Steward was the head trainer of Cotto, but a scheduling conflict forced the Puerto Rican boxer to replace him with Cuba's Pedro Luis Diaz.

"Cotto should win without a doubt. He is much better fighter than Margarito in all facets, and he's taken much better care of himself in the past two years. Cotto has not received the punishment that Margarito has in the past two years. He is also stronger and he will benefit from having the support of the Puerto Rican fans in New York," Steward told Ray Alazaga.

Steward would have loved to train Cotto for this grudge match.

"That is a moment that I dreamed about, being being inside the ring to celebrate [the win over Margarito] with Miguel. My mission has always been to be part of his rebirth as a fighter, but it won't happen. The Puerto Rican fans are the best in boxing and that moment [when he beats Margarito] is going to be great."
