Cotto vs Margarito 2: Miguel Cotto's New York Media Day (Video)

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

Here's a Top Rank video with a generic beat over three minutes of Miguel Cotto media workout footage:

I wonder whose beat this is? Did they make it for a greater purpose than this? Was it made specifically for Top Rank to put over internet videos few will actually watch?

On the topic of the fight, I will say I'm very interested to see how Cotto meshes with the highly-respected Pedro Diaz for this fight. It'll be their first outing together as fighter and trainer, and among many things that have changed since 2008, Cotto hasn't found a consistent trainer. He worked with Emanuel Steward after the Pacquiao disaster with Joe Santiago serving as in-name lead trainer, but that didn't really go anywhere, and while the split was amicable, I just don't think it did much for either man. Diaz is very, very intelligent, and if he's successful on Saturday, this could be a guy who becomes an in-demand trainer very quickly.
