Saturday's HBO pay-per-view main event between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito will be the equivalent of a "home game" for Cotto as Madison Square Garden in New York City is likely to be filled with ravenous Puerto Rican fans. Those fans will be cheering for their man to get revenge over Margarito, who many felt used the loaded hand wraps he was caught with prior to the Shane Mosley fight in the first meeting between Miguel and Antonio.
Cotto offered assurances to his New York fans that he has no plans to let them down this saturday night (via Boxing Scene):
"Fighting in New York has always been very special to me because the people have always supporte me and I want to give them another great fight and a victory to remember. ...I will not disappoin the people of New York on Saturday. I'm leaving there with my arm raised and this victory will be fore everyone who never stopped supporting me. I had a great preparation for this fight and I guarantee that this time the outcome will be different."
