(Orlando FL) I was invited by this boxing gym's owner to meet Miguel Cotto one evening before Cotto began his scheduled training. Miguel Cotto is a 4-time world boxing champion, and he's training not even 10 minutes from my day job! Miguel is a man of very few words, but in his silence he was quick to shake my hands as I wished him well for his upcoming rematch against Antonio Margarito. In their previous fight, Margarito won a highly controversial bout, after which it was found that Margarito had a plaster-of-paris type substance in his hand-wraps. It was speculated that the wraps are what gave Margarito the edge over Cotto in their first fight, resulting in Cotto's 1st loss as a professional fighter. However, on December 3, 2011 the two would step back into the ring against one another and Cotto would get his revenge by way of a 9th round TKO, from damage sustained to Margarito's right eye.
