ABC moot on Margarito

The Association of Boxing Commissions, (ABC) has denied taking an official position on the future licensing of Antonio Margarito. In a statement issued today, ABC President Tim Lueckenhoff said, “This is to clarify that the ABC has had no official contact with the Texas Boxing and Wrestling Commission. The ABC has not issued any correspondence in reference to this matter….It is true that the ABC Legal Committee held a conference call on Tuesday and discussed this matter along with other agenda items. The ABC may make an official comment on the licensure of Mr. Margarito in the very near future.” Top Rank is hoping to get Margarito licensed in Texas to appear on the blockbuster Pacquiao-Clottey card on March 13 at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.
