Cotto vs Margarito: A loaded question
December 02, 2011 (13:15) [ Indexed from Mirror.co.uk ]
During the last eighty years of boxing its landscape has been coloured by the fierce rivalry that exists between two nations, Puerto Rico and Mexico. Last weekend saw the continuation of that power struggle as rising Mexican star, Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez beat Puerto Rican veteran Kermit Cintron to retain his WBC Light Middleweight title. This weekend sees the resumption of hostilities between the two countries but in this instance the fight has an altogether nastier edge. 1934's clash between Puerto Rico's Sixto Escobar and Mexican Rodolfo Casanova was the first world title bout involving both nations. Since then the ongoing conflict has thrown up some memorable clashes. Julio Cesar Chavez taking on Hector 'Macho' Camacho and Felix Trinidad controversially defeating Mexican-American Oscar De La Hoya. When discussing the topic of controversy between Puerto Rico and Mexico however two names leap to the fore, Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito. The two men have met before in the ring. The war between them in 2008 was nothing short of epic. Margarito weathered a ferocious storm from Miguel Cotto early in the fight to bludgeon the Puerto Rican into submission in the penultimate round. At the time Margarito was one of the most avoided fighters in the world and this was seen as the moment he really announced himself on the world stage. It was Cotto's first defeat and it opened the door for Margarito to face American great Shane Mosley. It was during the final preparations for the Mosley match that one of the biggest scandals of modern boxing played out. Naazim Richardson, Mosley's trainer was present in the dressing room during the wrapping of Margarito's hands and he noticed what appeared to be a plaster of Paris-type substance on the hand wraps. Obviously plaster of Paris hardens when it comes into contact with water, in this case sweat. This lead to Margarito being accused of one of boxing's most heinous crimes, fighting with loaded gloves. Antonio Margarito lost the subsequent fight against Mosley and then lost his California state boxing license for a year. This ban was enforced by all other US state sporting commissions effectively banning the Mexican from fighting for at least twelve months. The main fallout from this ugly sequence of events was that many people now questioned the validity of Margarito's previous victories. Whilst Margarito to this day protests his innocence of any wrongdoing, either in the Mosley fight or previous bouts there are some who just cannot believe that the man from Tijuana didn't commit the ultimate boxing sin.  One of Antonio Margarito's chief accusers is Miguel Cotto himself. It is easy to understand why the Puerto Rican believes Margarito fought him with loaded gloves. It is not so much the nature of the defeat, after all Margarito walked through many of Cotto's shots to land in own during their first meeting. It is based around the damage that Cotto sustained during that fight. Cotto's face was a bloody mask of swellings and cuts by the time the fight was stopped. Nobody had ever hurt Cotto like that and at the time Margarito was highly rated but not as a particularly devastating puncher. Moreover, the two fights that Margarito has had since beating Cotto, (including the Mosley match) have ended in wide defeats for the Mexican. Miguel Cotto clearly sees this fight as a chance to prove that he was cheated out of his title.  Miguel Cotto will have to face more than just Antonio Margarito on Saturday night, he will also have to face himself. Cotto has, for so long, assumed that Margarito was cheating in 2008 when they met. This could have a number of effects come fight night. If Cotto thinks that he was beaten unfairly then theoretically he should have no fear of the Mexican. However, it is worth bearing in mind that nothing has been proven as to whether or not Margarito did use loaded gloves against Cotto. If Margarito turns out to punch just as hard when his wraps hav More...
