Antonio Margarito's boxing license has been revoked for at least
one year by the California State Athletic Commission for the
illegal wraps discovered on his hands before his loss last month to
Sugar Shane Mosley.
The commission's decision effectively bans Margarito, an
American-born fighter who now lives in Mexico, from boxing in this
country, since other states generally uphold such suspensions.
Margarito's trainer, Javier Capetillo, also lost his license for
at least one year.
