Boxing Press Conference: Joel Casamayor/Antonio Margarito

By Daxx Kahn October 26th, 2007 All Boxing Previews

On November 10, 2007, Madison Square Garden once again shows why it is the Mecca of boxing. The old ring may have been retired but that has not stopped the venue from having the most exciting cards in all of boxing.

This coming November that tradition continues when WBA Welterweight Champion Miguel Cotto, 30-0 (25), puts his title on the line against "Sugar" Shane Mosley, 44-4 (37), in a bout that many are already predicting will be one of 2007’s fights of the year before it has even taken place, although the main event of the evening is only one of several top bouts to take place on the card.

Aside from Cotto vs. Mosley we will see the return of former WBO Welterweight Champion Antonio "Tony" Margarito, 34-5 (24), in his first bout since losing the title to Paul "The Punisher" Williams earlier this year.

Margarito will face veteran contender and current NABF Welterweight Champion Golden Johnson, 25-7-3 (18), for the vacant WBO Inter-Continental Welterweight title. Margarito is in search of another world title and promises to make a statement on November 10 in hopes of a shot at the winner of the Cotto/Mosley bout.

Also on the undercard that night, we will see the return of Joel "El Cepillo" Casamayor, 34-3 (21), in his first fight since beating the late Diego Corrales over a year ago. Casamayor will not only be debuting under the banner of his new promotion company, Golden Boy Productions, it will also be his first fight back with Joe Goossen as his trainer since his first fight with Diego Corrales.

Casamayor, looking to make a statement of his own, will lay his Ring Magazine lightweight title on the line against Jose Armando Santa Cruz, 25-2 (14), the tough Mexican-American warrior who is perhaps best known for his performance against David Diaz in 2006. More...

In July, K-9 took a high profile fight on only two weeks notice that was televised on ESPN’s Wednesday Night Fights and took place as part of the after-party for the 2007 ESPY Awards Show. He suffered his first loss of the year against tough prospect Joel Julio.

SaddoBoxing had the pleasure of speaking to K-9 in an exclusive phone interview earlier this week.
