In 2009, just before his fight with Shane Mosley, Margarito was involved in an incident where he was caught with illegal hand wraps containing gypsum (calcium sulfate) which, when combined with moisture, forms plaster of Paris. His signature stoppage victory over Miguel Cotto in 2008 was subsequently called into question. Following consecutive losses to Manny Pacquiao (a fight in which Margarito sustained severe eye damage) and a rematch against Cotto, Margarito retired from boxing in 2012 but returned in 2016.Margarito was born in Torrance, California. From the age of two he grew up in Tijuana, Mexico, where he and his brother spent a lot of time in a neighborhood boxing gym.
