Miguel Cotto vs. Alfonso Gomez & Antonio Margarito vs. Kermit Cintron…

12 Apr

Nice little doubleheader of welterweight action tonight on HBO. First up is the much anticipated rematch between Antonio Margarito (35-5) and Kermit Cintron (29-1), two hard hitting latinos. Cintron’s corner threw in the towel during the first fight, leaving Cintron in tears. MMA fans may remember Cintron as being one of the boxers who challenged Dana White to a fight with one of his top fighters. It obviously never happened. In the main event, Alfonso Gomez takes on feared Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto in a fight I honestly don’t see going the distance. Gomez is known for his appearence on NBC’s contender, his most notable victory a KO over Arturo Gatti that ended Gatti’s career. With a win, Cotto will most likely face the winner of Margarito-Cintron, hopefully setting him up for Mayweather in early 2009.
