Live from Miguel Cotto’s fight
Antonio Margarito won against Joshua Clottey unanimously but that fight was given to him. Clottey showed more stamina and power but in the last 3 rounds was fighting with a broken arm.
I was there, in row 214 D watching everything that transpired. From the fights, the runs, the hugs and the exploitation of our symbolic flag there was a nation of Puerto Ricans sitting in those seats yelling and screaming and crying.
On round one of Cotto’s fight some dudes from the public wanted to join them and had a heated fight. They were taken outside and kicked out.
On row 214 a comment made by my brother in law stating that Margarito lost the fight was followed by rantings and fight insinuations of a Mexican crowd. Puerto Rican like he is he yelled that which cannot be said: “I am an American citizen, I don’t need any papers”. Security had to pay a visit. It was getting heated. None of the groups were kicked out, but it was hillarious.
I won’t comment too much about the fights: we all know Cotto knocked El indio in the 5th round
I forgot the name of this champion
