It’s a special edition of HBO World Championship Boxing with the exclusive presentation and free replay of Miguel Cotto vs. Antonio Margarito II, this Saturday, December 10th at 9:45 p.m. ET/ 6:45 p.m. PT on HBO. The HBO Sports team, which was ringside for the live event, calls all the action. The replay will be available in HDTV.
The second chapter of the heated Cotto-Margarito rivalry took place on Dec. 3 at New York’s Madison Square Garden and was carried live on HBO Pay-Per-View. It was much more than just a championship match, of course. It was a fight for vengeance for Cotto, and a fight for Margarito to try to regain all that he has lost.
It was an exciting encounter with a lot of good action, and one that saw Cotto largely dominate the fight en route to a 10th round TKO victory thanks to Margarito’s injured eye. You can read how we scored the fight as it happened live with our round by round, as well as some quickfire takeaways about the fight and what it all means.
In addition to the exclusive replay, HBO will have its cameras ringside Saturday night for the live doubleheader telecast from Washington, D.C., featuring Amir Khan vs. Lamont Peterson in a 12-round title matchup.
