In a show of unconditional support, Tijuana’s Mayor Jorge Ramos extended an invitation to former world champion Antonio Margarito to fight in his native city at anytime. The public invitation came shortly after the California Athletic Commission revoked Margarito’s boxing license. After a lengthy hearing in which no evidence was presented to demonstrate that Margarito incurred in any wrongdoing, the Commission revoked his license to fight in California for one year. Upon hearing of the news and to show his support, Tijuana Mayor Jorge Ramos said, “We welcome Antonio Margarito with open arms, and want him to know that when he is ready to fight again we want him to come to his hometown. He has been an exemplary athlete and has for many years represented the city of Tijuana with great pride and honor so it is a natural for us to continue to support him in his career that should not be blemished by a Commission that was not presented with evidence of any wrongdoing by our native son,” added Mayor Ramos.
