Update on Margarito and the handwraps

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Capt Lance Pugmire also touched on the Margarito handwrap situation, with the following:

Margarito has more to worry about than how to rebound from the Mosley loss. Before the bout, his original hand wraps were removed and Mosley's attorney said "flecks of a substance" that appeared to be like plaster of Paris were found on pads wrapped atop his fist. His hands were re-wrapped, and the contents of the original wraps and the "flecks" were secured in a box.

The California State Athletic Commission will begin "investigating" the contents of Margarito's hand wraps Monday in Sacramento, commission official William Douglas said Sunday.

That should mean we'll hear more sometime this week, maybe next week. I am genuinely dreading what comes out of the investigation of the wraps, and if it's bad news, Margarito's career is in real jeopardy.
