Antonio Margarito Denied California Boxing License

Antonio Margarito and his camp were hopefully optimistic that his suspension of his California boxing license would be lifted Wednesday. By Wednesday evening that optimism had be shot down.  The reports that the California Athletic Commission decided not to re-issue his boxing license.

In a 5 to 1 vote, Margarito was denied the license. A state attorney also blasted Margarito for “lying” about his knowledge of the loaded hand wraps that were confiscated before his technical knockout loss to Mosley. (ouch)

With his pending fight against Manny Pacquiao rumored to be held at Cowboys stadium November 13th this is not a major setback, more like a bump in the road.  It was perceived by Margarito’s camp that the re-issue of the license in California would make it easier to receive a license in Texas.  If the license isn’t issued in Texas, a contingency plan of having the fight in Abu Dabhi.

Although I do think Margarito had knowledge of the wraps and that wasn’t the first time he used them(read: Miguel Cotto), I need Texas to issue the stinkin’ license.  I am not going to Abu Dhabi for a fight. I’m shallow, sue me.

  • Nobody will be checking for this fight. They shouldn't issue Margarito his license back until he comes out & publicly apologize. Anyone who's ever boxed before, you know what is going on with your hand wraps, so for him to keep saying that he had no idea pasture was in them is a lie. I would be an entirely different feel when his hands were wrapped.

  • strange looking abs on Pepe..I though Chuck Liddell had a gut! haha

  • My spouse and i felt really comfortable when Michael could deal with his preliminary research from the precious recommendations he made out of your site. It is now and again perplexing to just choose to be making a gift of tips and hints other folks may have been trying to sell. So we figure out we now have you to give thanks to for that. The illustrations you’ve made, the easy site navigation, the relationships you will aid to create – it’s everything impressive, and it’s helping our son and our family recognize that that content is cool, which is certainly extraordinarily serious. Many thanks for the whole lot!
