Margarito fights to reclaim reputation, licenses

Antonio Margarito's promoter and lawyer think it's time for the disgraced welterweight to reclaim both his reputation and his U.S. boxing licenses.
Promoter Bob Arum and lawyer Daniel Petrocelli renewed their criticism of the California State Athletic Commission on Monday for its decision last year to revoke Margarito's license, which still hasn't been restored since the glove-loading incident that derailed the former welterweight champion's career.
Margarito will return to the ring against Roberto Garcia in Mexico on May 8 in the former champion's first fight since two suspect knuckle pads were confiscated moments before his knockout loss to Sugar Shane Mosley in January 2009.
