Round six of the HBO PPV main event between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito saw Margarito finally having had a little success in round five by trapping Cotto against the ropes. It was enough to win him the round on HBO's Herald Ledderman's scorecard.
Cotto still came out effective early, landing a left and a right while Margarito tried to push forward. Cotto seemed a little more aware in the early part of the round about not going back to the ropes but Margarito did continue to find some left uppercut success at times.
Cotto has blood coming out of his mouth and Margarito landed a hard body shot. Margarito's pressure did look to be bothering him a bit more but I still see it as a Cotto round.
Round: 10-9 Cotto
Fight: 60-54 Cotto
