Chavez Sr.'s Take: Cotto By Decision, Margarito By KO

By Rey Colon

NEW YORK - The former four-time world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. expects tonight's rematch to prove that Antonio Margarito is far from finished and has a good chance to beat Miguel Cotto for the WBA junior middleweight title at Madison Square Garde. Margarito beat Cotto in their first meeting, in July 2008, by an eleventh round TKO in the welterweight division. Unlike some of his countryman, Chavez doesn't believe Margarito's right eye is fully healed and he says the Mexican boxer has to fight smart in the ring. Margarito required multiple surgical procedures after injuring his orbital bone in last year's loss to Manny Pacquiao.

"It's a tough fight and Margarito is not finished. Margarito is stronger, taller and more braver. I think Cotto is a better boxer and it's going to be a long fight. If Cotto does things right, Cotto can come out the winner by decision. Margarito's eye is not 100%, but Margarito is very brave, strong and he will be attacking Cotto like he did in the first fight. Cotto has to be very careful. Again, if he makes a smart fight, he can win by decision. If Margarito wins, it will be by knockout," Chavez argued.

"Cotto fought two boxers [Yuri Foreman, Ricardo Mayorga] at that weight who were nothing, really. I don't think he's a true 154-pounder. He is very small for that weight [of 154-pounds] but he is a great fighter. If he fights smart, he can come out on top."

I think it's a braver thing to fight a man that pummelled you than to be a bigger man getting smacked around by the smaller 1.

I love how this is suddenly becoming PR vs Mex. lmao. I seriously want Margarito to pay for his actions tonight. And Mr.Cotto will deliver on his promise.
