Should I fear a riot at MSG?

By Michael Woods

More than one person this fightweek has asked me if they think there could be a riot goin' on at the Garden. They speculated that the joint could erupt, in a bad way, if Miguel Cotto gets whupped with the ugly stick again by Antonio Margarito.

I doubt it. As a matter of fact, I will go out on a limb and say we wouldn't see another Bowe-Golota scene. Why, you might wonder? My theory: those most likely to get beer-fueled stupid can't afford, in these hard economic times, to buy a ticket, which were scaled from $50-$600. An upside to a down-in-the-dumps economy...

Thoughts?
