No spoilers, no review. Even for a typing-happy wannabe scribe like myself, words seem inadequate to describe this fight.
By way of comparison, I will try to convey its place in boxing's hierarchy of great fights.
Morales vs Barrera 1
Hatton vs Tzyu
The Thriller in Manilla
Any combination of Hagler, Hearns, Duran and Leonard.

If the above list get your heart racing with unforgettable memories, then watch Cotto vs Margarito- its easily in the same stratosphere.

I've seen all those fights, and everyone one of them were exciting. Particularly for me the Barerra vs Morales. I would add 2 more fights to the list Paquiao vs Marquez I, and any of the 3 Ward vs Gotti fights.

Although Hatton vs tzyu was more of a shock for me, than actual excitement.

Having not seen the fight yet, I'm looking forward to seeing it now.

Great figtht, classic example a Good big man will beat a Good smaller man Most time. Cotto is a warrior but Magratrito was bigger and Cotto's heavy shots didn't seem to bother him. Cotto out punched him almost 1.5 to 1, except for the power Shots and he landed more of them but Magratrito was just too big and relentless. Though I would say Cotto was just as strong. That was a great fight niether has anything to be ashame of.

I feel the same way about a Oscar DelaHoya fight vs. Pac man, except it wouldn't take Oscar 11 rounds. Oscar boxes as good as Floyd (almost) and he hits hard. Manny hits hard for a lightweight but Oscar power would take him apart. You got to wonder if Money is worth that whipping.
