Cotto vs Margarito II: Official Poster

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

Here's the official poster for the December 3 HBO pay-per-view rematch between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito, from Top Rank:


Pretty simple, clean, direct -- I like that. But it feels like the fighters aren't even in the same year, let alone anywhere near one another physically. I really wish, again, poster-makers could get the fighters together to stare at each other or stand back-to-back or whatever. I feel like it brings something more to the table than these studio portraits mashed together.

For those who haven't been keeping up, this card is shaping up as a must-buy for those who can stomach Margarito, and perhaps a must-buy-and-then-skip-the-main-event for those who can't. The PPV undercard is as follows:
  • WBA Lightweight Title: Brandon Rios vs John Murray (rumored)
  • Welterweights: Mike Jones vs Sebastian Lujan
  • Junior Middleweights (Rematch): Pawel Wolak vs Delvin Rodriguez

This is just a great, great card for action fights, and I get the feeling few will wind up paying and feeling dissatisfied at the end of the evening.
