July 26, 2008
MGM Grand, Las Vegas

Antonio Margarito stops Miguel Cotto in the 11th round to win the WBA World Welterweight title. *Prior to the 2009 Shane Mosley-Antonio Margarito fight, as Margarito's trainers were wrapping his hands, Mosley's trainer Nazim Richardson noticed what appeared to be a Plaster of Paris powder on the wraps. (The Plaster of Paris hardens when it comes into contact with moisture, and any fighter will sweat during the course of a fight.) Once Richardson saw the substance, he accused Margarito of fighting with loaded gloves. Margarito's hands were rewrapped and Mosley defeated Margarito.

When Cotto heard what had been discovered by Richardson, he accused Margarito of fighting with loaded gloves in their bout.

Margarito was suspended for a year.

The revenge fight, this was hugely satisfying to watch. On December 3rd 2011, Miguel Cotto put his WBA Super Welterweight title on the line against Antonio Margarito at Madison Square Garden, New York. However, this was so much more than a world title bout.
Three years prior to this, the two would meet in a Welterweight title match at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Margarito, who was nicknamed the 'Tijuana Tornado' would pick up an eleventh round TKO victory when Cotto's corner threw in the towel with less than a minute to go in the round. The fight was a classic, it was billed as 'the battle' and it didn't disappoint. After the fight Cotto said he was surprised at the power in Margarito's shots.
Six months later Margarito would put his newly crowned title on the line against Sugar Shane Mosley. Before the fight, Margarito was alleged to have had his hands wrapped with two foreign substances in them, these were Sulfur and Calcium, which are illegal. After re-wrapping his hands he would go on to lose via a 9th round knockout. But this wasn't the end of a disappointing night for the Mexican. He would have his boxing licence revoked for a year, and questions were asked whether he had used these illegal wraps before. Instantly, the attention turned to the Cotto fight which Margarito had just won.
Two things happened after this, calls for a rematch with Cotto got louder, and Margarito became public enemy number one in the boxing world.
The rematch was a great watch as Cotto dominated from the first bell, to the point where Margarito couldn't see out of his right eye, a combination of the corner and doctor stepped in to stop the fight at the beginning of the tenth round. 'Juanito' had his revenge. #Boxing #BoxingTales #TaleOfTheTapes #Revenge #Rematch #BoxingGold #BoxingIcon #BoxingLegend #MadisonSquareGarden #MSG #BoxingHistory #TheBattle #PuertoRico #Juanito #MiguelCotto #TijuanaTornado #AntonioMargarito #WBA #Super #Welterweight #Title #Champion

Here's a throwback to one of Manny Pacquiao's most interesting fights. Though Pacquiao has been labeled as a "boring" fighter in recent fights, if his opponent is able to keep up with his fighting style, it's usually a blockbuster. Boxing fans want more knockouts from the legend. July 1st, Pacquiao will be facing Jeff Horn, a relatively unknown fighter in the US. Hopefully this is a warm up fight for a bigger opponent later in the year. @mannypacquiao @teammikeygarcia

Un #MiguelCotto (40-5, 33 KOs) parco y con pocas ganas de profundizar en sus respuestas reveló en una conferencia de prensa en #LosÁngeles que comenzará su preparación el próximo 1 de julio de cara al duelo ante #YoshihiroKamagai (27-3-2, 24 KOs) el 26 de agosto en el #StubHubCenter de #Carson.

La contienda representará el regreso del boricua desde que perdió ante el mexicano #SaúlÁlvarez en noviembre de 2015. “Estaremos entrenando con el mismo nivel de responsabilidad que lo hemos hecho siempre. Vamos a estar en las óptimas condiciones”, indicó el puertorriqueño de 36 años.

#Cotto dijo que está entrando “al último capítulo de su carrera”, que inició en 2001 y que lo ha llegado a enfrentar ante rivales de la talla de #ShaneMosley, #AntonioMargarito, #JoshuaClottey, #MannyPacquiao, #RicardoMayorga, #FloydMayweather Jr., #SergioMartínez, entre otros. 📹: @mayan_tiger
