    Vegas = Margarito"ville"

    I just got in from a special Saturday night edition of "Beer Night" at Scotty Dukes house. He was gracious enough to host the Cotto-Margarito fight festivities. The three under cards left us feeling unfulfilled and I was leaning towards a Cotto route of Margarito. Miguel is historically the more decisive and accurate puncher.

    That theme held true for this fight although He was out hustled by the tenacity of Margarito and his desire to impose his will and hand Cotto his first defeat of his professional career. And that he did in a display of dominance that gained momentum in the 8th and 9th rounds. Clearly giving it his all he battled through every exchange and continued to press Cotto to defend himself. He was unwavering in his pursuit of Cotto and seemed fixated on gaining a K.O. or a T.K.O.

    This was not going to the judges and in the 11th it was ended as Cotto took a final knee and his corner and the ref stopped the contest almost simultaneously. Nice fight gentlemen. See you on ESPN Classic Wednesday Night.
