As I wrote yesterday, HBO has done a spectacular job of promoting the pay-per-view rematch between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito. While most of that promotion has been based on the overflowing bad blood between the two men, HBO has also found time to focus in on the fight itself.

Yesterday they released this "Under The Lights" Scouting report video:


That video is just over two minutes long but gives appropriate weight to the various factors in the fight. Hitting on what turned the fight fight in Margarito's favor, the attack plan for both men and even finds time to touch on the possibly loaded wraps in the first bout.

It's brilliant, simple and, most importantly, looks professional and clean.

Given that the scouting video may have interested you in watching (or re-watching) their first meeting, HBO has also done the smart thing and released the full fight for free as well, which you can watch here:
