I'm finding I love doing RBR, I need to do it more often, heh. Big flurry from Cotto, Margarito shrugs it off and surges forward. Cotto's doing a bit better making Margarito miss. Margarito, though, is manhandling Cotto on the inside, Cotto always scoring with clean flurries, but is that enough to win when Margarito is pushing the pace? Fight is everything I expected, great fight. Margarito just gets it for me.
Cotto's gonna have to stand his ground more and fight if he wants to win rounds from here on out. Or not, he's doing well sticking and moving here. He could be catching a second win, Lederman has Cotto just winning the fight so far. Cotto doing well with his counterpunching still, Margarito is there to be hit, Cotto not getting hit so much here. Margarito's neck is gonna hurt when this fight is over, he's getting his head spun like the Exorcist. Margarito hurts Cotto at the end, but for me, I think Cotto won the majority of the round. Gotta be fair, Cotto gets it.
Margarito wants to finish Cotto off, but Cotto fights back with a 1-2. Margarito is windmilling, he's just a machine here. Cotto goes to a knee! Wow, his face is covered with blood. Margarito goes forward again. Cotto is hurt bad, he clinches. He goes to the canvas again. They stopped the fight, his corner threw in the towel! Margarito wins by 11th round TKO. Margarito is officially a Mexican superstar, what a fight! It definitely challenges Vazquez/Marquez III as FOTY! Incredible.
