Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito meet Saturday night in the main event of an HBO pay-per-view card loaded with great fights. The two men have no shortage of bad blood following a 2008 meeting which Margarito won by TKO, only to be caught with loaded wraps in his next fight. Cotto now feels that Margarito cheated against him and put his life in danger. It has made for some great pre-fight trash talk and this evening the men took to the scales to make it official.
Cotto hit the scales at a very fit looking 152.25 pounds after Margarito had already made weight, so the fight is a go.
After the two men made weight, Bob Arum stood between them for a photo op but there was no direct face off, likely for fear of a scuffle breaking out.
