 In their long awaited grudge rematch, WBA super welterweight champion Miguel Cotto (36-2, 29 KOs) scored a tenth round TKO over Antonio Margarito (38-7, 27 KOs) on Saturday night before a sellout crowd at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Cotto won the first two rounds by moving and punching. In round three he opened up Margarito’s right eye, the eye which Margarito suffered a broken orbital bone in the Pacquiao fight. Margarito upped the pressure as the rounds progressed, but Cotto’s mobility and sharp punching still did more damage. Margarito’s eye was swollen shut by round seven, but he continually applied pressure despite Cotto landing the better punches. Doctors took a long look at Margarito’s eye at the beginning of round nine, but the bout continued. NYSAC doctors stopped the fight at the start of round ten. The time was 0:03
