Margarito Has Work To Do

Antonio Margarito was recently quoted in the Mexico-based publication Esto as saying he expects to soon get his license restored by the California State Athletic Commission, which revoked Margarito's license for a minimum of one year in February after Margarito was found to have illegal hardended inserts in his hand wraps prior to his ninth-round knockout loss to "Sugar" Shane Mosley in January in Los Angeles.

Margarito did not say how he expected to get his license back before next February, other than to say his legal team is working on it. His promoter, Bob Arum, on Tuesday was asked if he could elaborate on Margarito's comments.

"No, no I can't," Arum told BoxingScene.

Arum did discuss what Margarito will need to do in order to make people forget about the incident that has resulted in a cheater jacket being hung on Margarito's back.

Arum noted that some have wondered if Margarito had been guilty of fighting with illegal wraps prior to the Mosley debacle.

"There is some skepticism that, did that happen in other fights?" Arum said. "And the only way he's going to get over that is for people to see him in his next few fights. If he's as devastating as he was before, then people won't dwell on it.

"If he isn't, then people might very well dwell on it."

Arum pointed to the situation surrounding Mosley, who was found to have illegal substances in his system prior to his second fight with Oscar De La Hoya in September 2003.

"The same for Mosley," Arum said. "He admittedly took steroids when he fought Oscar the second time. Since then Mosley has been quite a fighter even without steroids; he has been tested so extensively.

"So the steroid issue that focused on one particular fight has now become less consequential."


Is it just me or does it sound like Arum is actually admitting there that Margarito did cheat but that we'd get over it? Not a mention of hand cream there.  :Smiley

The way he worded it. "Did it happen in other fights" and a comparison to Mosley doesn't sound like speculation. It would be odd for Arum to be caught out so he could be mis quoted.

yeah i see your point, who knows what he meant by it. I'm still really gutted about this, i really like Margarito and had hight hopes for him... but it will always be tarnished  Undecided

Ya i agree RAZZ. I just cant stand cheaters , i know if i was running the show i would punish cheaters to the max as in suspend license for a long time. Cotto has never been broken like that and it started in the 2nd round with a broken nose ,

im not saying if marg did use illegal substance on cotto but if he did, its just too bad for cotto cause he lost his 0 , he lost superstar status, some questioned his heart, confidence probably shattered , ALL THIS IN ONE NIGHT.

As much as i want to see margarito back in the ring , if you cheat then you should be punished longer than a year and i would like it effect your career because the person you used it on has probably effected his.

Ironically Ottke was a trained plasterer but he coudn't punch his way out of a paper bag. Except for knocking Mundine out cold. I put that down to the collective mindpower of the boxing community though. Divine intervention.  Grin

I really REALLY hope LiveFight's very own Apollo Anton Ono joins this site

You two will get along mighty fine  Grin

Back on topic though, i remember that fight, what puzzled me at the time was why the ref continued to count when Mundine was clearly unconcious and would never have beat the count in 10 minutes let alone 10 seconds!
