Cotto vs Margarito 2: Pay-Per-View Preview Show Featuring Antonio Margarito (Video)

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

Here's the Antonio Margarito section of Saturday's pay-per-view preview show. If you've got eight minutes and like laughable exaggerations in boxing as much as I do, it's fun to watch:


I think my favorite part is "knockout artist Robert Garcia." Who is anyone kidding? Then, they can't even back up the idea that it was a serious fight with clips from the fight, as you get Margarito farting around with Garcia and doing his worst Roy Jones Jr impression.

The transition from that fight to "and then he lost one to Manny Pacquiao, greatest fighter in the world" -- wow, that is phenomenal stuff. No mention of Margarito's bad eye, or Pacquiao demolishing him physically. Just, "Oh yeah, and then he lost to Manny Pacquiao."

Poor Tony. He's had a rough few years.

The Cotto segment, which is coming along shortly, might actually be even worse, so if you enjoy the hilarity of this video, then boy, come back for that one.

Still, nothing will ever top the paid-off writers who swore up and down that Mosley vs Mora was a must-see fight.
