Cotto Vs. Margarito: Fight Sells Out Madison Square Garden In New York City

Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito are set to square off for a second time this Saturday night on HBO pay-per-view. The bout takes place live from Madison Square Garden in New York City, one of the most famous arenas in the world. Given the large Puerto Rican fanbase in the area, it seemed a natural to give those fans a chance to see Cotto's quest for revenge against Margarito.

While there was already a good buzz surrounding the fight, Top Rank got some very good news as today the fight officially became a sellout as Fred Sternburg tweeted:

It's Official. Cotto-Margarito II is completely soldout! It's the second complete sellout for @RealMiguelCotto at The Mecca Of Cotto-MSG.

The sold-out crowd will no doubt be ravenous as they hope to see their man get revenge against the fighter many feel used loaded hand wraps and put Cotto's life at risk the first time around.

We will have much more about the event this week here on MMA Nation as will our boxing blog Bad Left Hook.
