    Fight of The Year?

    What an insane fight! Poor Cotto looked totally broken, blood streaming down his face, kid crying into his mother's tits. Magarito is just a machine...

    Still, not sure if it's totally sealed as fight of the year. Am still thinking about Vasquez vs Marquez III AND WHO KNOWS WHAT COULD HAPPEN DOWN THE LINE WITH kATSIDIS AND Diaz

    I can't be fucked to retype that.


    Anyway, God bless Tijuana boxers. Now if only they could learn to kick and grapple...

    It was a Terrific but gruelling fight and I saw it today on SETANTA at noon, cos I can't be arsed to say awake until 4-5AM (I'm in London).

    I was very impressed by Cotto's ring generalship and punching power and combos plus excellent use of the Uppercut at his taller opponent.

    I was even more impressed at Margharito's ability to press the fight from the opening bell and to absorb some terrific punching from Cotto. He was largely unfazed by the rigour of the contest and set a torrid pace.

    Not being smart but as it progressed, I thought it likely that Cotto would lose Heart and fold. I don't mean that disparagingly, it's just that I've seen exceptional punchers lose to self doubt when the bloke they're punching doesn't fold. That thought occured to me from the 8th-9th Round onwards.

    Cotto will come back and likely be more difficult to beat when he realises that competitors like Margharito are very rare and exceptional talents. However, eventually Margharito will likely find his chin will give out because no fighter can continue to trade with his chin forever. It happened to Doug DeWitt who absorbed tremendous punches from the Great Thomas Hearns and wasn't disturbed but his punch resistence was shattered by Nigel Benn, who ko'd him.

    The analogy is one of having money in the bank and each punch you take is a withdrawal of capital and eventually you're overdrawn on your Account.

    It was a great fight.

    As for Manny Pacquiao, WOW - what a fighter!

    I thought it had the trappings of FOTY but I was pretty sure that Cotto would take a UD. Good fight, Margarito is no joke and is a hell of a lot of fun to watch.

    I don't know what they make fighters out of down there in Tijuana, but if they could bottle it up and sell it I'd be the first in line to buy some...That came out a little different then I thought it would.

    ...so fight of the year is what then? Does it have to be MMA now? Wouldn't that just be 'MMA fight of the year'? Or are you suggesting that FOTY should just get done away with altogether?

    What the hell is in Margarito's head? Cotto's was landing these beautiful three-shot combinations with serious power and he didn't even break stride.
