Sept. 12, 2004 (SPORTZNEWZ) - A repeat of their first encounter in 2001, the fight ended as a result of an accidental head butt and a bad cut over
Margarito's eye. Only this time we had a decision. Santos fought in a very different style than he normally does as he stood and traded shots with
Margarito even hurting him on a couple of occasions. In the end it was a split decision victory for Santos and he keeps his WBO Super Welterweight
Championship. SportzNewz had Margarito winning the fight 85/86, but a couple of the rounds were close and could have been scored either way. It will
be interesting to see what if Margarito will stay a Super Welterweight or go back down to Welterweight after this loss.
