Super Welterweight Championship Supremacy
Madison Square Garden NYC, New York

Three-division world champion and the Pride of Puerto Rico Miguel Cotto and professional rival and three-time welterweight world champion Antonio Margarito, of México, will embark on a fierce super welterweight championship battle. Cotto vs Margarito live streaming to announce their long-awaited world championship rematch.

Their aggressive boxing styles led to much praise from multiple boxing writers. Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports named it the third-best boxing match of 2008 and the fight generated 450,000 pay-per-view buys, the third-highest in 2008 for a boxing match. Margarito was later suspected of cheating in this bout after controversy arose over his use of hand wraps after his bout with Shane Mosley.

One interesting thing for this fight is that both fighters' style is kind of the same, both wait for their opponent to do the first move. But Cotto is likely to punish Margarito with his speed and power. Margarito's approach would be a strategic one. He would just wait for that opportunity and try to land a strong jab at Cotto.

Cotto lost to Mexican Antonio Margarito by 11th round TKO at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, July 26, 2008. Cotto's corner threw in the towel at 2:05 of round eleven as Cotto went down on his knee for the second in the round. Along with suffering his first professional defeat Cotto lost his WBA welterweight title to Margarito.

And as far as the trainer switch for Cotto goes, I think Margarito, now with Robert Garcia, also has a better trainer than he had the first time around, though the quality of Steward compared to Evangelista Cotto is probably greater than Garcia vs the guy thrown under the bus whose name no one ever says anymore.

Margarito has the career record of 37 wins 7 losses while 27 of his wins came as the result of Knock outs. Margarito also lost against Manny Pacquioa in the past and he will be eager to go out there and get another win under his belt against Cotto. While Miguel Cotto has the record of (36-2, 29KOs) and Cotto will be looking to get the revenge of the defeat he suffured in the hands of Margarito in 2008.
