Antonio Margarito and Miguel Cotto do not like each other. Their animosity is not a part of the age old process of two guys pretending to have "bad blood" in hopes it generates a few more buys and draws a slightly bigger gate. This is real, genuine hatred.
The two men met with the press for the final press conference and we have some video of the event:
Some Highlight quotes (credit to Bad Left Hook for transcribing):
I've been called a criminal by this man next to me. I don't know why he calls me a criminal. I am not a person that beats up on his own family. [note: this is in reference to Cotto getting into a fight with his uncle and former trainer]
He says he's not going to have mercy for my eye. He can hit my eye as many times as he wants. He hits like a little girl. A super flyweight hits harder.
He can do whatever he wants. He's not going to beat me. Never.
If you don't know what criminal means, you can look it up in the dictionary. Someone that uses a weapon.
You're an embarrassment to boxing, OK?
This Saturday night, you're gonna see what this little girl is gonna do to you.
