Cotto vs. Margarito is NOT official yet, Guess who didn't sign?

By Scoop Malinowski, Boxinginsider.com: While most everyone thinks it's a foregone conclusion that Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito will meet in a major IBF/WBA Welterweight unification showdown in July, an unexpected delay has arisen which may jeopardize the much anticipated Super Fight. Margarito's manager Sergio Diaz explains.

Boxinginsider: I was wondering if the Cotto-Margarito fight was signed yet? I know you guys signed but Bob Arum said it was not a done deal.

Sergio Diaz: "We're still waiting on Cotto."

Boxinginsider: With your history of seeing marquee names like Winky Wright, Sugar Shane Mosley and Floyd Mayweather not sign to fight Antonio Margarito, are you starting to feel concern that maybe Cotto will skip a fight with Tony too?

Sergio Diaz: It's always a concern, but Bob wants this fight to happen. If Cotto turns this fight down, it will not only be disappointing for us, Bob will be especially disappointed. Cotto and Top Rank meet tomorrow (Tuesday).

It is very rare that the place I get my odds from puts up odds when a fight isn't pretty much a lock. This is nothing new, but because it is such a big fight it goes public. The fight will happen.

The fight is signed. I wouldn't take the word of a writer at boxinginsider. Arum and HBO have confirmed the fight and the date.

Why are they saying Cotto has yet to sign, maybe is some kind of ploy on his part to get out from under Bob Arum......it's getting to the point were a person doesn't know what to belive......

I read just a few minutes ago that Mayweather is worried that Cotto may lose and is trying to secure an undefeated Cotto as an upcoming opponent. It doesn't sound legit to me, but this is what I read.

I wouldn't be dismiss that that quickly. If there is one certainty it's that Mayweather rates Margarito. He didn't want to fight him himself so I'm sure he reckons he is capable of beating Cotto.
