Antonio Pitalua vs Cosme Rivera: Gear Up for Tonight's Rematch with September's Fight (Video)

Here's the first fight between Antonio Pitalua and Cosme Rivera, which took place on September 9 in Mexico City on Telemundo.

Tonight, the two will battle in a rematch from the same location (same venue even), and again the fight is televised by Telemundo at 11:35 p.m. EST. It will also, I have heard, be available live on WBCboxing.tv.

If you're looking for a good fight to watch tonight, this is your bet. Pitalua (52-5-1, 46 KO) and Rivera (33-14-3, 24 KO) went to a really spirited, fairly controversial draw in this one, and the rematch was pretty much immediately signed.


Judges the first time around scored it 115-113 for Rivera, 115-114 for Pitalua, and 114-114 even. I favored Rivera slightly, but it was a difficult fight to score. This is a pair of tough, gritty veteran fighters who may not be world class (in fact, they absolutely are not, let's just say it) but put on a good fight, and have proven to do so with one another.

We'll have live coverage at 11:35 EST of the rematch, so join us this evening.
