title Margarito Wrap Gate

margo3586454By Manuel Perez: Let me go on record by saying that I see Antonio Margarito being cleared of the wrap gate controversy that surrounds him at this time. Margarito is a true warrior and would never resort to adding hardened substances like plaster of paris to his gloves to get an added advantage. This guy is a straight shooter and wouldn’t lower himself to this level just to get an edge in his fights. Read the rest of this entry »

And for good reason, much of the talent in today’s boxing is in the 147 pound weight class. But just 12 pounds south of the welterweights is the division that has historically been home to some of the greatest fighters to lace up a pair of gloves. Benny Leonard, Joe Gans, Roberto Duran and Pernell Whitaker are just a few who have displayed their talent in the 135 pound division. Read the rest of this entry »

title Juan Diaz Bio

dia3423z45By Sam Gregory: Juan Diaz was 105-5 as an amateur.
