The HBO crew and boxing fans flooded Robert Garcia’s Boxing Academy in south Oxnard, CA, this past Sunday as Antonio Margarito and Sergio Martinez among others attended the first annual charity event to help fund the traveling and lodging expenses for amateur fighters.
Boxing fans got to take their picture with the fighters and the opportunity for an autograph signing session as you will see during HBO 24/7. Margarito has not only adjusted to his new trainer but also has made a home in his new gym, the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy as he trains for his 150 lbs. catch weight clash on November 13th at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, TX, against Manny Pacquiao.
A win against the most recognized fighter of the post-De La Hoya era will go a long way towards hopefully restoring his reputation inside and outside of the ring.
