Antonio Margarito comeback

On March 13 in Dallas, Texas, disgraced welterweight Antonio Margarito could return to the ring to fight Carson Jones in a welterweight bout.

You might remember Margarito being suspended for using illegal pads on his hands. The illegal pads were discovered prior to his bout with Shane Mosley last January. Mosley went on to win via KO in the late rounds.

Margarito was on top of the world after being Miguel Cotto in the summer of 2008. Margarito did a very bad thing and he let lots of people down. He was a popular figure with plenty of big wins to his name, but now we all must wonder what he did to deserve those wins.

I guess Margarito deserves a chance to continue with his boxing career, but the argument can be made that he should have been banned for life. What are your thoughts.
