If Canny Acquaint wins this contest, he will be the first and the only boxer to ever have eight championships in eight different weight divisions. This is a record that will surely bring him to the hall of fame of boxers.
As for Antonio Margarita, if he wins, this could be his fourth world championship but more importantly, he will be the first to defeat Acquaint after his lost to Erik Morales of Mexico during his featherweight days. This will surely be an intense fight as both slugger punchers are ready to engage in a fight at any given point of time.
