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.
