Margarito vs. Cotto....a done deal!

WBA welterweight champion Miguel Cotto and IBF welterweight champion Antonio 'The Tijuana Tornado' Margarito flank legendary Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum during a press conference for their upcoming welterweight championship showdown on July 26 at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. The Top Rank promoted show billed as "The Battle" will be televised on HBO Pay-Per-View. "It's a very tough fight," stated Cotto, "but as has happened 32 previous times, I will have my arm raised and keep my championship." Margarito vowed "Mexico will have a new champion." Arum stated "This is a real fight between two fighters with a lot of dedication and I don't think I'd go wrong in saying that this will be one of the best fights in the history of this or any other division."

The worst thing that ever happened to boxing is PAY-PER-VIEW. $50-$60 per fight? Are you F**king kidding me? I just cannot get myself to pay for a fight that could last 3 minutes or end in a draw with the corrupt boxing judges. Should be a great fight though.

I agree 100%! Apparently, you and I are the ONLY fight fans here by all the snoring going on...;)

I agree with Pay-Per-View ruining boxing.

However when I did have HBO, I must admit that I enjoyed the Arturo Gatti vs. Irish Mickey Ward immensely. Those fights were intense!

My family grew up watching boxing on tv back when my parents paid the cable bill and we got all the premium channels.

Same....but I go BEFORE that, when they had GREAT fights on ABC sports with Gil Clancy and Howard Cossell.

How's THAT for going back?!;)

So what is this ? The 5th or 6th "fight of the year"?:rolleyes:

No, it will be THE fight of the year. As oppose to the Mayweather fights....these two guys will not be dancing and "on their bicycle" to avoid getting hit. They will FIGHT and maybe box....as opposed to the other way around...:rolleyes:
