Margarito Will NOT Have Special Medical Exams For Alvarez

By Miguel Rivera

The Commission of Professional Boxing and Wrestling in Tijuana has not ask the former world champion Antonio Margarito to have a special medical examination on his eye for the upcoming fight on Saturday against Ramón 'Inocente' Alvarez.

The local commission is giving him a pass because this past March he passed a rigorous examination in Mexico City in order to be cleared for his comeback fight with Jorge Paez Jr.

Juan Carlos Pelayo, president of the Tijuana commission, said Margarito will only have to go through routine exams before the weighin. Margarito is also licensed in California. Unless something extraordinary is discovered during the routine exams, he will be given the green light to face Alvarez. Angel de la Torre will be in charge of the medical exams.

"We will not have anything extraordinary other than the routine tests, because in his last fight one of the requirements that was required of his return was to take part in a very rigorous study that was done by an ophthalmologist of a high prestige and he passed, so there shouldn't be any problem, "Pelayo said to ESPN Deportes.

"What is going to be done will be handled by the head of medical services, Angel de la Torre, and his team will take card of routine exams before Friday's weighin.

Margarito will fight Alvarez in the super welterweight division over twelve rounds at the Convention Center Rosarito, California, and the winner could come closer to a world title shot as both boxers are eager to land a major fight at the end of the year.

Antonio will be making his second professional fight this year after the win over Jorge 'Maromerito' Paez in March. Antonio confided a few days ago that he did not expect to have trouble getting the win against the older brother of Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.

I can see why his wife divorced him....she probably woke up in the morning and jumped 10 feet when she saw his face and got tired of that. She would be right in saying that this was not the man…

Apparently that boxing commission is not giving much relevance 2 the seems 2 b in diminished capacity as well as a tendency to swell and bulge out... there has to be some type of optical damage in there ,…
