Revenge is sweet.

As you can see in the above photo of a heartbroken Antonio Margarito as the referee stops the fight due to his injured eye, that's exactly what Miguel Cotto got at Madison Square Garden last night (Sat., Dec. 3, 2011) in New York.

It took three years to get these two back inside the squared circle to settle their differences but when they did, Cotto made it count, as he turned in an utterly dominant performance.

Margarito was game throughout, pushing forward in zombie mode and never backing down, despite the immense punishment he sustained during the fight. But he was no match for his arch rival.

Amazingly enough, Margarito was defiant in defeat. Even with his eye swollen shut, the clearly beaten fighter couldn't help but deliver his best verbal jab in the post-fight interview.

"I hurt him. Look at his face. I'll say it again -- he hits like a girl."

The evidence is impossible to ignore and it's obvious emotions were running high. One thing is for certain: we can turn the page on this one, folks. Take a bow, Miguel Cotto, you were amazing.
