Antonio Margarito media workout pictures
Also in the gym were undercard protagonists Pawel Wolak and Delvin Rodriguez. Not present was British contingent John Murray despite his trainer Joe Gallagher’s attempts to locate where the workout was taking place through Twitter.
With the fight only days away, Margarito’s trainer Robert Garcia questioned Cotto’s appetite for the fight claiming that recent comments by the WBA champion were at odds with the warrior’s code.
‘Cotto is a warrior, a great fighter,’ said Garcia. ‘But to tell you the truth, when I saw what he said on [HBO’s] Face Off, when he talked about fighting nowhere else [but New York], he’s thinking like a businessman.
‘He’s down to his last few big paydays. He’s thinking of his family, and his kids, and that’s the way a real person thinks. But I’m around fighters 24/7 and they’re different.
‘If you are a fireman and there is a burning building with people in it who need to be saved, you don’t stand outside and say, ‘I’m not going in because I have to think of my kids.’ It’s your job.
‘You take the risk and go in, because that’s your job. As a fighter, you go into a dangerous situation, but you do everything possible to win, because that’s your job.’
