Miguel Cotto made today's public hearing in which we will hear if Antonio Margarito will be granted a license to box in New York that much more anticipated.

Because on a noon conference call, the Puerto Rican boxer said that he signed to fight Margarito in N.Y., and that he will not fight the Mexican elsewhere. A hearing starts at 2 p.m. at the boxing commission headquarters in Manhattan, and we will hear if Margarito receives a license. I will attend, and tweet.
