Antonio Margarito says he will knock out Manny Pacquiao when they fight in November, the odds of that don't seem to be in his favor.
According to the Association of Boxing Commissions Margarito is “free to pursue licensure with any ABC member commission”.
What that means is that his one year suspension for wrapping his hands with an illegal substance is up, if he can find a state that will let him fight.
The California Boxing Commission voted 5-1 against him, but the word is that the fight will likely take place in Texas on November 13th of this year.
Pacquiao's manager, Freddy Roach thinks that the suspension was too short. But he also thinks the fight won't be close, his guy will win easy.
Here are some reasons why Margarito might be wrong about his prediction.
