Editors Notes: Miguel Cotto wanted his revenge over Antonio Margarito, and in the wee hours of this morning at Madison Square Garden, he got it. Cotto dominated his adversary, peppering him with powerful combinations and targeting the surgically-repaired right eye of Margarito. Right as the bell rang for the 10th round, doctors from the New York State Athletic Commission advised referee Steve Smoger to stop the fight, and he did.

Cotto has been using new training methods post his last fight. The body just will stop responding at some stage to some of the stuff that they just continue over and over. So he has been introducing other things.

Such as a strict diet for Cotto, a focused running program and an ever-changing series of weightlifting and flexibility exercises that, in addition to improving his strength and conditioning, also limits the time he spends in the boxing gym.

Work Out

Five-hour daily workouts with Cotto begin about two to three months before each fight. “He’s never done the same conditioning work in any [two] camps. I always take bits and pieces and work on areas that I feel like maybe he needs to improve a little bit. We work well together to kind of figure out what will be the best for him.”
