Tonight at 9 p.m. EST on HBO pay-per-view in the United States and BoxNation in the United Kingdom, a terrific four-fight pay-per-view that promises action from start to finish will go live from Madison Square Garden, and Bad Left Hook will be here with live, round-by-round coverage, results, and immediate post-fight analysis of each bout.
In the main event, WBA junior middleweight titlist Miguel Cotto (36-2, 29 KO) faces the man who handed him his first career loss in 2008, Mexico's highly controversial and much-hated warrior Antonio Margarito (38-7, 27 KO). Cotto is looking to not just avenge that defeat, but to "play with the health" of Margarito and his bad right eye, as he says Margarito did three years ago, when Cotto believes his opponent had loaded hand wraps.

Also on the card, Brandon Rios faces John Murray in a fight that went from perceived blowout (if action-packed blowout) to a potential upset in the making after Rios failed to make weight yesterday. The WBA lightweight title will be on the line for Murray to win only. In an IBF welterweight eliminator, Mike Jones takes on Sebastian Lujan. And in the pay-per-view opener, junior middleweights Pawel Wolak and Delvin Rodriguez look to resume the carnage of their July 15 Fight of the Year candidate.
It should be an explosive night of boxing, so join us this evening.
