That is, until the announcer polled the crowd.
Cotto's supporters were strong and loud, eagerly awaiting their champion's redemption over his previous 2 losses. Cotto's family was there in full support. Undercard teams were adorning their tracksuits. Music was booming over the speakers framing the main-stage area.
The announcer then asked who was there for Rodriguez. The room erupted from voices not yet heard. This camp's supporters were there in full effect to cheer on the Dominican Republican boxer out of Connecticut. Both Jr Middleweights made their weight this afternoon, with Cotto coming in at 153.2 lbs and the taller Rodriguez coming in heavier exactly at the 154-lb cut-off.
With both boxers wearing their Orlando Magic jerseys from the city's Commissioner, it seems that we are all getting ready to rumble in the City Beautiful.
