Boxing coverage is pretty sparse around here, but Saturday night's Miguel Cotto-Antonio Margarito punchathon deserves special mention. Cotto came in unbeaten, a heavy favorite and one of the most lauded boxers on the planet for his impeccable technique. All Margarito did was cobble a script that was equal parts Rocky and Terminator. Except in this case, Rocky won and the Terminator wasn't crushed by complex machinery. Like I said, I don't write about boxing much.
Fortunately, Unsilent Majority and Large at the Sporting Blog are both inspired by the Sweet Science — not to be confused with the Beautiful Game (soccer) or the Fat Drunk Chick of Sport (baseball) — and penned detailed accounts after watching what they both call the absolutely-definite-no doubt FIGHT OF THE YEAR. Shows what they know. It's still only July. I've got five more months to track down Katie Couric.
