I can't hype this one any more than it has been. I can't tell anyone any more than they've heard that this is a MUST-SEE FIGHT.

it is already a Fight of the Year candidate. Two rugged, proud fighters that never fail to bring action. When's the last time a Cotto fight let you down? When's the last time a Margarito fight wasn't worth watching?

Throw in the age-old Puerto Rico v. Mexico battle, and you've got a passionate crowd to go along with what promises to be an all-out assault from both men.

It's the sort of matchup people claim is missing from boxing. And with what I'd truthfully consider a slight down year following an excellent 2007 in the sport, it's just what the doctor ordered right now.

Cotto and Margarito will not disappoint. Everyone is picking Miguel, and it's hard to pick against him. But Tony Margarito will make this more than competitive, you can bet the mortgage on that.

I've been able to free myself up for fight night, so now all that stands in my way is Comcast's spotty record for actually putting the fight through. But we will be here tomorrow night with live, round-by-round coverage, come hell or high water. We hope you'll join us for what promises to be one of the biggest, best nights of the year.
