KO of the Day: Antonio Margarito v. Kermit Cintron I

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Seems fitting. And remember when ESPN got good fights?

This was an outclassing by a rugged veteran against an undefeated young guy with a big punch who just was not prepared for the onslaught that was coming from a top-notch fighter. This clip contains part of the fourth round and the entire fifth round, all 2:12 of it, and you get to see Cintron dropped three times (four, since another one is in the highlights between rounds).

Cintron all but verbally begs someone to stop this fight. I don't think we'll see that tonight.
