Cotto vs. Margarito odds on the fight updated

Cotto vs. Margarito odds on the fight updated Just hours away from the start of the highly anticipated fight Cotto vs. Margarito and the odds have been updated once again. The two boxer weighted last night, both hitting the 147 pounds, in preparations for the fight today. Miguel Cotto (32-0, 26 KOs) is looking to retain his World Boxing Association title, while Antonio Margarito (36-5, 26 KOs) will do his best to take it away from the Puerto Rican. "If you put one Puerto Rican boxer in front of a Mexican boxer, you're going to have a good fight. It's great to be a part of this rivalry, to have the opportunity to have another chapter of this rivalry, to put this fight at the same level as others from the past," Cotto was quoted, although boxing fans need no extra encouragement to order the Cotto vs. Margarito fight on HBO's pay-per-view.

 As we reported earlier, Miguel Cotto is the favorite to win the fight tonight at the online sportsbook BodogSports, although there is a chance in the odds offered. At the bookie Cotto opened with odd -265, but thanks to heavy betting on the Puerto Rico native, the odds makers had to adjust the lines and now Miguel Cotto is -285 favorite to win. The heavy betting action on Cotto also resulted in lengthening the odds on Margarito, who is now underdog with odds +225, down from previously +205. Betting on the Cotto vs. Margarito fight will be available until the last second at BodogSports.
