The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) has temporarily suspended the licenses of Antonio Margarito and his chief corner man, Javier Capetillo. The temporary suspension will remain in effect until CSAC has fully investigated the circumstances surrounding events at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on January 24, 2009. A foreign substance was found by California State Athletic Commission staff in the hand wraps of Antonio Margarito before his bout against Shane Mosley at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The substance found in Margarito’s hand wraps is currently being analyzed by the California Department of Justice. An investigation as to whether either licensee violated CSAC rules is ongoing. Mr. Margarito and Mr. Capetillo have been asked to appear at an initial hearing scheduled for February 10, 2009.”
“The licenses of Mr. Margarito and Mr. Capetillo were suspended pursuant to Business and Professions Code section 18842, which allows for the temporary suspension of a license when such an action is necessary to ‘protect the public welfare.’ CSAC Rule 323 limits the amount and type of gauze and tape allowed under a fighter’s boxing glove. Rule 390 allows CSAC to discipline a licensee when his or her actions are a “discredit to boxing” or violate the rules of CSAC.
“Commission staff will have no further comment until such time as the Commission makes a final determination of whether licensee actions in this case warrant fines, suspensions, or the revocation of licenses. The Commission has asked Mr. Margarito and Mr. Capetillo to appear at an initial hearing currently scheduled for February 10, 2009.
He would have to be found guilty of tampering with the wraps from that fight and seeing as the wraps were signed off by some one from the nevada state comission i think there is no way they will admit to neglegenceSo if they find Margarito and his corner man guilty of tampering with his wraps I assume Cotto's camp cannot appeal or can they and have the fight turned into a No Contest?
Quite a surprising venue. I'll probably go to that, Haye is the only interesting boxer in the heavyweight division these days.Don't think its been confirmed yet but the Haye vs Klitschko fight is going to be at Stamford Bridge by all accounts
Perhaps up to 35-40,000 tickets togo on sale.
I only spar mate, weekly at middleweight at the Woodside boxing club.didnt know you boxed what weight are you?
how many fights you had?
You are like the 3rd/4th person on here that has said that, Im starting to think this isn't a jokeWhen are we going to be streaming your fights CLK, I wanna see you get ktfo
I hate you guys with your long reach, impossible to get inside onI am the taller fighter though.. 6"3'
i disagree also. i think (and can understand why) Hatton is approaching it from the point of view that Pac is the best p4p in the world, so if he beats him he automatically becomes the best p4p. no chance, and i'm a Hatton fan (though i'm a bigger Pac fan).Do you think Hatton becomes p4p #1 by beating Pacquiao? I disagree I think he goes up the list but it doesnt make him number 1. It was the same case when Tarver beat Jones, he was far from p4p#1
if you spar with heavies, and you're a middleweight, and you've never gone down, get better sparring partners.never been knocked down let alone out and i spar with light heavies/heavyweights so i guess we have to come up with something else
