Photos: Margarito, Carson Jones - Face To Face at Final Presser

By Rafael Soto

Former welterweight champion Antonio Margarito promised to make a statement, and plans to go to war when he steps inside the ring with Carson Jones. Margarito hopes the bout with Jones will bring him to another world championship, because his intention is not only to win, but to do it in a way that is overwhelming.

Margarito (40-8-0, 27 KO's) was very lively at the final press conference in Chihuahua, where he spoke to reporters about the upcoming bout take place on September 2 at the ¨Mueluel Bernardo Aguirres¨ Gym of the Chihuahua capital. And he went face to face with a very motivated Jones (40-11-3, 30 KO's).
