Nevada to Margarito: Apply first in California

Updated: July 09, 2010, 16:34

LAS VEGAS(AP) Nevada boxing regulators say Antonio Margarito has to answer in California for a hand-wrapping scandal before he'll get a license to fight in Las Vegas.

Nevada State Athletic Commission executive Keith Kizer said Friday that a Nevada license doesn't hinge on California granting the 32-year-old Margarito a license. But the commission voted 4-1 to table Margarito's application until he seeks reinstatement in California.

Margarito for at least one year after an illegal plaster-like substance was found in his hand wraps before a January 2009 bout against Shane Mosley in Los Angeles. Margarito's hands were rewrapped and he lost the fight.

The former welterweight champion is 38-6 with 27 knockouts.
