Margarito following Cotto around the ring, Cotto wants to box a little more than he wants to fight. Nothing wrong with that, and he definitely isn't running. Handspeed and countering are winning points for Cotto, Margarito just can't match those kinds of skills. Cotto with a huge right, biggest punch of the night, Margarito goes nowhere, pushes forward as usual. Cotto's winning this round huge so far, but Margarito doesn't stop trying to score big punches. Nifty defense, Cotto's round easily.
Keep in mind I picked Margarito to win a close fight. Margarito willing to rough Cotto up, keeps Cotto on the ropes as well as he can, but Cotto counters well off the ropes. Margarito working well to the body. Cotto's landing good counters, but he's not as active here as he was in other rounds. I tend to favor aggression and activity a bit more for the most part. Margarito doing better than the last round. Cotto's putting rounds away, but Margarito is trying to invest his body work for later in the fight. Close round, Margarito just edged it for me.
