The fourth round of the HBO PPV main event between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito saw Margarito bleeding from the eye and swelling closed. Cotto drilled him with a left right on the eye, Margarito smiled and tapped his own eye before trying to come forward more.
Margarito simply was unable to get up to Cotto and land anything of significance before trapping him against the ropes finally and landing two hard body shots. Cotto with a few more right hands and a left hook.
Cotto finally had a moment of standing still in front of Margarito and getting hit by a few uppercuts.
Cotto's movement dropped significantly late in the round, while still winning the round, it isn't a good idea long term in this fight. Another big left from Cotto right before the end of the round.
Round: 10-9 Cotto
Fight: 40-36 Cotto
