Former three division champion Antonio Margarito and opponent Roberto Garcia met face to face in Aguascalientes, México to announce their main event fight on May 8. Margarito  (37-6, 27 KOs) vs. García (28-2, 21 KOs) will headline the Latin Fury 14 pay-per-view. The first fight for Margarito since last January's knockout loss to Shane Mosley.

"I am excited and motivated to return to boxing. I'm prepared as always with great professionalism in providing a great show to the public to who attend to see us on television. I know my rival Garcia is a fighter who is going to come to fight and try to defeat me," Margarito said.


 
"We've overcome that bad night [with Mosley], I'm sorry for what happened before the fight and I want people to know that I would never be part of what they accused my coach of doing, but I understand that I am the team leader and that I am responsible for their actions, but I complied with the sanctions that were made on me and it's time to return to the ring and catch up and what better to start in Aguascalientes in my beloved Mexico, thanks to all the fans for their support and how both of them back support is to be champion of the world," Margarito.
 

 
"I always wanted to be in a big fight, and I'm facing a great fighter in Margarito. I'm preparing like never before and I am sure that I will defeat him. It will be a great fight and I will not blow this great opportunity. I also have dreams and I think it's my time," said García.

Any Margarito fans worried that he'll never be the same after the punishment from Cotto/Mosley?

[QUOTE=BMWM3P]This bitch only shows up to defend her man.[/QUOTE] I see actually invesigating things for myself and coming to a "logical" conclusion is defending Tony? Nevermind I have said several times that he deserved to get fined and suspended.

[QUOTE=-GDS-]Why do you feel a need to constantly defend a cheater? People spend a lot of time criticizing the actions of people who don't cheat, but you want to devote your time defending someone who had a complete disregard for ethics and the safety of the opposing fighter? You’re in the wrong,...

[QUOTE=pistol whip]I like it when people pop into these threads and randomly say "I hate Margarito". Yes he cheated but he didn't cheat against "you", and never did anything to "you". Seriously people get the fuk over yourselves you act like he wronged you personally or something.[/QUOTE] ...
