The only thing I can say about Margarito is that I don't have respect for him. If someone has to put something in his wraps to win fights, he is not a good fighter.

Kermit Cintron, twice defeated by Antonio Margarito. This is the definition of an issue that rocks a sport. Everyone in and around the sport has an opinion on it, and a strong one.

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.

Tim Noonan, Chairman of the California Athletic Commission (emphasis mine). The hearing will be February 10.

"When he put the wrapping on, I asked if I could feel it and when I felt it, I was like, ‘Oh my goodness, this is too hard,’ " Richardson said. "When the commission flipped the [tape] over, a little block of gauze-like plaster fell out. I said, ‘Unwrap the other hand,’ and they were saying, ‘Oh, oh, the other hand is good.’ I asked the commissioner, ‘What if I unwrap the other hand at the end of the fight and it falls out of there, too?’ "He made them unwrap it. And when they unwrapped the other hand, another one fell out. It was wet with a little plaster on it."

Roach was asked if his charge would face another Mexican, Antonio Margarito. "We're brave," he would say. "But we're not that brave." So I chimed in and asked, "What about Wladimir Klitschko then?" "I'd let him face Klitschko before I would Margarito," replied Roach, with a chuckle.
