Team Margarito: Hey Cotto, Trilogy Fight in Mexico City!

By Rey Colon

New York, Madison Square Garden - A third fight between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito that would decide who is the better fight between the two, said Margarito's co-manager Francisco Espinoza. In July 2008, Margarito stopped Cotto in eleven rounds to capture the WBO welterweight crown at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Cotto got revenge on Saturday night when he stopped Margarito in the tenth round to retain his WBA 154-pound title at New York's Madison Square Garden.

"Why not," Espinoza questioned. "But I don't think it will happen because [Cotto] won't be willing to leave his [comfort zone]. Let's see if he has [the guts]. I think it's a good idea to do it in Mexico City. I told them it would be the same fight [as the first]. Cotto did not want to stop running. After taking a few hard punches, you saw Cotto's condition. It was a matter of a round or two [before Margarito was going to end it]."

A third fight in Mexico City? That's a little rude.
