I thought it was sort of scummy for SSM to be working with Conte and using the 'clear and the cream,' but I don't put that on the level of loading your gloves.

There is even a sect within the hardcore boxing community that believes juicing is of no benefit in this sport. I don't agree with that and I do think it helps, mainly with conditioning and an ability to recover during training camp.

That said, when you do that, you are just tilting the competitive balance of a fight in your favor.

When you put plaster in your gloves, you are seriously taking the life of your opponent in your own hands. For a guy like Margarito who, at his peak, was throwing well over 100 punches per round, to throw plastered hands into that mix and factoring in all of those punches and all of those impacts with that kind of weapon...

It is just the worst possible thing that someone in this sport can do. That is when it becomes much more than just an issue with the competitive balance of the fight. You are toying with a guy's life with plaster.

And, I don't blame Cotto for hating his guts. Margarito showed no compassion in that fight and he even hit Cotto as Miguel was on a knee. If his gloves were plastered (I think they were)? The guy is just the ultimate scumbag.

I really don't see any comparison when contrasting that with a guy using an illegal performance enhancer.

That's an interesting perspective. I don't think there was any plaster involved.

Yeah, she's a petite girl. Under 5 feet, I think. It wouldn't surprise me if her asshole was completely useless.

He's not fighting Jean Pacal he's fighting Jean-Marc Mormeck.

Margarito got his ass beat down. Cotto just outboxed him silly. Revenge is sweet. It was a good stoppage. If it was up to him, he'd probably fight blind.
