Antonio Margarito set to return on Manny Pacquiao undercard

Trying to put the controversy of his illegally wrapped hands in his bout with Sugar Shane Mosley behind him, Antonio Margarito could be making his comeback as soon as March 13th. There is a catch though, this will only fly if the Texas state athletic commission will grant him a license to fight. Margarito, in the wake of plaster like substance being found on his wraps was suspended from boxing for one year. Bob Arum, Top Rank Boxing’s promoter, told that indicators are good that the Texas state athletic commission will grant the disgraced Mexican fighter a license. If this happens, Margarito will be on the under card of the Pacquaio/Clottey PPV fight at the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. {loadposition in-article}

A opponent has been anounced as well. Arum told sources that Carson Jones will be stepping up to fight the former welterweight champion. The agreement will be for the fight to be ten rounds and take place at a weight no higher than 155lbs.
