NYSAC delays Margarito decision; possibility looms that the bout could be moved

The New York State Athletic Commission today postponed their decision on whether or not they will license Antonio Margarito to face Miguel Cotto on December 3 at the nearly sold out Madison Square Garden in New York City, pending an examination by a commission doctor. Margarito suffered a serious eye injury in his bout with Manny Pacquiao in November 2010, but had been given to go-ahead by doctors to meet Cotto in a highly charged rematch.

Meanwhile, there is speculation that should the NYSAC fumble the ball, several states would be willing to stage the bout with Cowboys Stadium in Dallas being the frontrunner.

It will be Mendez’ first fight since a controversial decision loss to Juan Carlos Salgado for the IBF super featherweight championship.

The bout, scheduled for 10 rounds, will take place at the Hotel Jaragua, in Santo Domingo.

“Believe me, this is the biggest mistake they have made with his career and I’ll be going over to Finland to knock him clean out. He’s called the Nordic Nightmare, but he’ll be having nightmares about me for the rest of his life after I’ve left him flat out on the canvas. I’ll be fit and ready for this fight like never before, it’s the big fight I need to really get my juices flowing and performing like I know I can.

Undefeated WBC middleweight champion and the Son of the Legend, Julio César Chávez, Jr. (43-0-1, 30 KOs), of Culiacan, México, and WBC #4 contender “The Pride of Providence” Peter Manfredo, Jr. (37-6, 20 KOs), of Providence, RI, and Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum host the final news conference on Thursday at Dave & Buster’s in Houston, Texas. Chávez Jr., the newly-minted world champion, will be making his first title defense, against Manfredo Jr. on Saturday at Reliant Arena.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr: I hope on Saturday to give you a great, great fight. I expect a very tough fight. Manfredo has a lot of experience and is a real tough guy. I’m taking this fight real seriously. I’m working real hard, I’m not leaving anything in the ring. I’m giving it all and I want to show every one what I’m capable of.

Peter Manfredo Jr: My father was a tough fighter, but he was no Chavez Sr, that’s for sure. I had to work my way up through the ranks. I couldn’t get to where I am with my name or anything like that. I had to work up to this level. But I’m ready. Like I said, I trained very hard out of respect for you (shakes Chavez’s hand). I know it’s going to be a tough fight and I’m ready….he doesn’t stop coming forward and if you look at my nose and my face you know I don’t miss many shots. You’re gonna see a great fight. You’re going to see someone that wants to win a title and someone that doesn’t want to lose his title and that’s just gonna make for a great fight. Hopefully you’ll get a fight of the year. Hopefully you’ll get something like a Ward-Gatti where we can make millions of dollars doing a trilogy. Click here for more photos…
