I think we could have a cracking couple of fights tonight, and for once I feel they have a chance of meeting expectation

Not going to be watching it. The one I want to win more than anything is John Murray tonight. I'm a big fan of his and love his style as I did of Hatton aswel. Rios v Murray and Cotto Margo will be guaranteed great fights and doubt they will go the distance

I'm going with my heart and saying Murray by stoppage

And Margo by KO again. Can't help but think Cotto is still emotionally and physically scarred by that defeat from their first fight.

Rios looked awful at the weigh in apparently. He weighed in at 146lbs this morning. Limit was 147.

Looking forward to the re-match between Pawel Wolak & Delvin Rodriguez.

That judge that scored it for aaron is a joke

Boxing has to start showing how the judges score each round to the public to get rid of the farce decisions that's been happening

I agreed with the commentary for a change, 8-1 Cotto. Frankenstein had more nimble footwork.

On side note. One great upside of boxnations creation is that I don't have to listen to Jim Watt repeat himself silly for round after round. Pet hate.

First fight something that is always overlooked is Margarito couldn't of cheated with handwraps as the Nevada state commission supplies all equipment, where as California state commission (where the Mosley fight was) allows the boxers to supply their own.

I still think Cotto will win though, but never write Margarito off!

I've never heard that before. Although not sure what difference that would make? As I understand it, he was adding pads that turned hard to the handwraps, rather than having special handwraps.

I'm chuffed for Miguel though. I hope Margarito packs it in now.

I like Darke, infact I long for the days when it was Darke and MCcrory. I find Watts commentary grates on me, repeats himself over and over and over. Drives me to distraction. I can hear him droning on right now about there being "more method" and "better quality in his work".

I'm not a big fan of Adam Smiths either.

Long live box nation.

I like Adam Smith and Jim Watt. Smith's commentary when guys are on trouble is excellent. One of his best was when the ref stepped in to stop castillo-corrales.

'It's been stopped! Unbelievable!'

Pretty much screaming it. I loved that. John Rawling is good but I'd still rather listen to Watt co-commentating than Enzo or Paul Smith.

IMHO, not even nearly a patch on Darke and McCrory.

To be fair if you weren't screaming at the end of Corrales/Castillo you need your pulse checked.
