ESPN - Cotto to face Margarito on July 26 at MGM Grand in Vegas - Boxing

ESPN - Cotto to face Margarito on July 26 at MGM Grand in Vegas - Boxing

Bob Arum’s manner of speaking kills me, but he does get it right. This is the one to watch. I like the part about “two real men fighting.” From wuss to wuss, WTF are the rest of us? 

"That's why we're calling it 'The Battle.' It's a tough-ass fight. Two real men fighting. There won't be any playing around. No ducking or dodging. These are two guys who will go at it. That is their style. And don't forget the element that it is Mexico vs. Puerto Rico, which is the great rivalry in boxing."

Said Bob Arum.

Arum is also on the mark with his mention of the Mexico vs. Puerto Rico riff. If ever there was blood ethnicity angst embedded in a boxing match, it’s with this one. You have to see it to believe it. My brother-in-law is of Mexican descent and I’ve heard the slant many times over.

I’m down with Cotto, hermanos, but that’s not to deride Margarito. Both these boys will be bringin’ it and it’s likely that the referee could even get hurt from watching. Click on the title headline and read about it from ESPN’s account.
