Team Margarito: We Are Ready For Miguel Cotto on 12/3

By Rey Colon

Antonio Margarito is ready for a December 3 rematch in New York City with Miguel Cotto, the WBA champion at junior middleweight, according to one of his co-managers, Francisco Espinoza, who states that his boxer has already received the backing of doctors and already training to get himself into shape. The bout is tentative to take place at Madison Square Garden. Margarito stopped Cotto in eleven rounds in 2008. The Mexican boxer was sidelined with injuries from last November's defeat to Manny Pacquiao.

"First they had said it was going to be in Las Vegas but then it was moved to New York. This will ensure a good showing at the box office. What was stopping us was the medical approval but he received it from the doctor and now he can move forward. He is already in light training," Espinoza said.

Espinoza said Margarito was weighing about 165 pounds a couple of weeks ago.

"The fight will be at the weight of Miguel Cotto, 154 pounds. No less," Espinoza said. "We are going to have strong sparring sessions on a steady basis. And so it's going to even out a little with Antonio's inactivity. And win or lose going forward, he is eager to continue and he feels completely fine. He runs like he's in a marathon. He likes that and he's in perfect condition. We're going out that night to win again. It will be a great fight."

I think that Margarito has faded more than Cotto. And he has not had any pop on his punches since Mosley. Cotto was cleanly outboxing him until the wraps hardened, ooops I mean, until the middle rounds. Margarito has faded,…

[QUOTE=romebyko;10694297]I'm going with Marga's just like the first fight,Marga's style is all wrong for Cotto..[/QUOTE] Margaritos confidence, health and recent form are all against him. Cotto should get revenge.
