Margarito beat Cotto to a bloody pulp because he had bricks in his gloves.

Cotto looks really sharp through two here, hopefully he keeps it up.

If what you guys are saying is true, shouldnt that be enough to get you banned from boxing, or at least suspended? Wtf?

Looks like Margo just stomps around the ring eating punches until you tire out. This dude is like the zombie of boxers, because Cotto is stealing on him at will.

Insufficient evidence. They never found any plaster. He did get a suspension though.

Margo denied any knowledge of it and through his long term trainer under the bus. He was still suspended, but they couldn't say with certainty he knew [as far as a smoking gun] even though he'd have had to be a retard not to notice the difference in a regular wrap and a loaded one.

before the mosley fight, nazim inspected margarito's wrapping and found hardened plaster in them, good thing he spotted it and made margarito have them rewrapped, cuz if he didnt, mosley woulda been fighting against some mighty dangerous hands

Remember Margo played stupid so they couldn't say for sure he knew what his trainer was doing, even though common sense tells you, which is why they suspended him, but couldn't ban him for life.

Margo is a plodder, so Pac whipped his ass.

Cotto tried to braul instead of box, so Pac whipped his ass.
