Man, I can't even tell you guys how excited I am for this fight. This is about the only matchup made this year that could even come close to rivaling Vazquez/Marquez III as the Fight of the Year.
I dunno though, it's too even for me to call right now. Cotto's got the boxing skills, more speed, and sharper tools, but Margarito is about THE hardest man in the game, incredibly tough and relentless. Both of them are exquisite body punchers, both of them have roughly equal power, and both of them are bound and determined to impose their own will on their opponent. I see no way this fight could possibly even average, it says greatness on every level.
Either way, Mayweather has no excuse to not fight the winner of this fight should he beat de la Hoya again. Ducking the Cotto/Margarito winner would be tantamount to yelling from the mountaintops that he's a giant pussy.
Damn, I can't even pick, both of 'em are a couple of my favorite fighters around. I just wanna see these two get it on. July can't come soon enough.
