This Stuff Still Can Happen

If anyone has wondered why boxing is going the way of the eight-track player, read this story regarding former welterweight champ Antonio Margarito. To entice you to click the link, the crux of the matter is that before Margarito's fight against Sugar Shane Mosley, Mosley's trainer, Nazim Richardson objected to Margarito's hand wraps.

With good reason, as it turned out.

They contained elements of plaster of paris.

In 2009.

It's hard to believe except that it's boxing, which conjures up images of guys in slick suits, back-room deals, smokey arenas and the like. And, in this case, Margarito apparently tried to cheat, unless he'll make a Major League Baseball Players Union member's defense of "well, I didn't know what I was injecting in my body." Yeah, right, Margarito got the wraps from GNC.

At any rate, this is another bad situation for boxing, as it continues to slide into oblivion.
