Antonio Margarito fielded questions from the media during the post-fight press conference following his TKO loss to Miguel Cotto. Margarito believes he could have continued and said that the final three rounds would have been “his rounds.”
Said Margarito: “I think there was some favoritism (towards Cotto). My eye was worse when I fought Pacquiao. I asked for at least one more round but they wouldn’t give it to me.
“Those last few rounds were going to be my rounds. I was starting to connect and he was holding. If I would have recieved one more round, I would have given my all.”
