HISTORY: On July 26, 2008 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas WBA Welterweight champion Miguel Cotto defended his title against Antonio Margarito. Margarito stopped Cotto in the 11th round to win the title in a thrilling fight. Cotto had taken the early initiative, frequently landing series of punches on Margarito during the early rounds while using his footwork to avoid danger. However, Margarito was relentless in his pursuit of Cotto and eventually began to wear down Cotto's resistance by trapping him against the ropes. Cotto was hurt in the seventh round after a pair of Margarito uppercuts caused his nose to bleed. Margarito continued to chase his opponent down and inflicted further damage towards the end of the tenth round. Margarito then threw a series of punches at the start of the eleventh round, with Cotto against the ropes and bleeding profusely. A combination from Margarito finally forced Cotto to his knee. Cotto got up, but Margarito continued to land punches on Cotto. Cotto's corner threw in the towel after Cotto went down a second time voluntarily. Offered here is an original, on site poster for this event.
