Antonio Margarito gets "Punched Out"

CottoMargarito_2011

Taking it back to the days of Deluxe Paint and also paying homage to one of the best video games ever made, Mike Tyson's Punch Out. On Dec 3, 2011 Antonio Margarito met Miguel Cotto in the ring for the second time around (Margarito won the first match in the 11th round via a technical knockout). This time Cotto took care of business and the fight was stopped after 10 Rounds due to the condition of Margarito's right eye.

The Margarito "Punched Out" piece took about 4-6 hours to create with your basic square brush in photoshop.. no big deal. The Great Tiger & Don Flamenco were used as reference for the face.

Meanwhile, Cotto's (37-2-0, 30 KOs) next fight is scheduled for Saturday, May 5, 2012 vs Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0-0, 26 KOs) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
