CLIP REEL: COTTO VS. MARGARITO


Tijuana Thunder in the house.

Tomorrow's PPV match between welterweights Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito looks to be one of the most exciting fights of the year: not just because of the antagonizingly intense boxing rivalry between Puerto Rico and Mexico (the two countries have engaged in over sixty world title matches), but because both fighters are hard-hitting, offensive-minded hellions. In case you need further introduction to the fighters, we're providing all the required reading—and viewing!—via Clip Reel.
