Night Of Revenge: Daniel Santos vs. Antonio Margarito II
Three years after their first meeting ended in a no contest from an accidental headbutt, WBO Super Welterweight Champion Daniel Santos and Antonio Margarito do it again in Puerto Rico. Margarito turns southpaw in the opening round and gets cracked by a big left hand from Santos. They slug it out in the third, with Santos landing the cleaner shots, but Margarito buckles Santos's knees with a big right hook in the fifth. In the sixth, a clash of heads again opens a cut over Margarito's right eye. Just seconds into the tenth round, Referee Luis Pabon takes Margarito to see the ringside doctor, who decides to stop the fight. After nine rounds, Santos has convinced two of the three judges that he is ahead and takes a close split decision over his Mexican rival.
