Antonio Margarito: Manny Pacquiao Has My Title, I Want It

By Mark Vester

Former champion Antonio Margarito could be facing the pound for pound king of boxing if everything falls into place. He returns on May 8 against Roberto Garcia at La Feria de San Marcos in Aguascalientes, Mexico. If Margarito looks good, he will return in another fight and then possibly get the chance to fight Manny Pacquiao later in the year if a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. does not come around for the Filipino champion.  

"I want to fight Manny Pacquiao. He has my title belt and I want it back. I know I can beat him," Margarito said.

Since the incident with the illegal substance being found in his handwraps prior to the fight with Shane Mosley last January, Margarito's past fights have come under fire. He claims that nothing was done in any of his poast fights.

"I'm a clean fighter. This never happened in the past. But if someone has a problem about something, we can settle it in the ring," Margarito said.
