NEW YORK — Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito have sold out Madison Square Garden, proving there's plenty of interest in what happens in their rematch Saturday.
Even if it often sounds as though they're still fighting their bout from more than three years ago.
The two boxers spent more time talking about the past than the present in the buildup to their fight for Cotto's WBA super welterweight title. Margarito beat Cotto in July 2008, but what happened six months later forever changed discussions about that bout.
Margarito was found to have illegal hand wraps before a loss to Shane Mosley and didn't box again for more than a year. Cotto says he has photos proving that Margarito also used illegal hand wraps in their fight, which Margarito denies.
