Is it possible the Cotto fight could have taken something out of Antonio Margarito? Why did he look slower and more off than usual against Mosley? How did he spend his year away from the sport he loves? Have his legion of supporters stayed loyal to the Tijuana Tornado? Long time Margarito manager Sergio Diaz addresses these questions and more in this exclusive interview. Margarito, who turns 32 next March, hopes to make his return to the ring next year? *************: First of all, how did Antonio spend his year off from boxing and did he maintain his weight around 147? Did he stay in the gym, what activities did he do, vacation, holiday, play other sports?Any new family members?Sergio Diaz: It has been frustrating, disappointing, and extremely depressing for Antonio but he continues to train on and off in Mexico to maintain his weight. We just saw him about two weeks ago and he is currently walking at 160 pounds. As far as activities, other than than boxing, he really isn?t into any other sport. He has a brother-in-law who is also a professional fighter whom he guides. It?s funny to see how nervous Antonio gets when his brother-in-law is up in the ring, just about to fight when he himself is a fighter. Antonio has been on a couple of trips during this time that he has been off. He and his wife have family and friends throughout Mexico that they like to visit. No children. *************: As we saw at the Mosley and Williams fights in LA, Antonio was clearly a beloved champion. He was much respected for his fearless style and how he gracefully and patiently had to wait so long for the big money fights, especially after Mayweather ducked him in 2006. He is respected for accepting the fight with Paul Williams and competing so well. And for how friendly he was to his fans and supporters. Since the incident in January vs. Mosley, has this positive relations with boxing fans changed? How have fans treated Antonio?Sergio Diaz: Yes and no. He has gotten really nasty fan mail, but at the same time he has a lot of fan sup
