Default Loaded hand wraps question (Trinidad/Margarito)

With the Cotto/Margarito rematch only a few weeks away, a lot is being said about Margarito's loaded wraps. He has taken a lot of shit from boxing fans about it and will always be stained with the mark of a cheater. But didn't Trinidad use loaded wraps as well? Why isn't that brought up or talked about as much as with Margarito. My thoughts are that the fact that Margarito was suspended for it has a lot to do with the high level of criticism.

Because in ny, Trinidad has to wrap a different way in which i heard so he didnt do anything illegal while Margarito did. It's not so hard to figure that out. When Trinidad fought Mayorga in nyc, the commision, mayorga trainer was there very closely to look at trinidad wrap and everything was good.

margos trainer inserted an old pad into margos knuckle pad...

trinis dad would make his fist into cast by wrapping tremendous amounts of gauze and tape gauze and tape, over and over again....said he's always done that....bouie fisher, naz richardson and bhop said that what trini would do, was like getting hit by a baseball bat....look it up, there's a good read on it online

juanma got busted for the same shit...

Interviewer:"I talked to William Joppy before his last fight and he brought up an issue that Trinidad's people wrapped Tito's hand illegally and that is why he lost. He said that your people caught Trinidad illegally wrapping his hands. Can you tell us what happened?

Bouie Fisher: I tell you, Ike. They have been getting away with that for a long time. I sent my people to Trinidad's locker room to make sure everything was right. When they got there they came back to me and told me that Trinidad's left hand was wrapped before they got there. So, I had to go over to his dressing room myself, this is my business and I have been doing it for over 50 years. When I got there I told them to unwrap the hand and do it over because we need to see the hand being wrapped. They refused to unwrap the hands so I told them I guess the fight will not happen then, we can reschedule to another date. The officials came in and said we don't have time to do this over. I told them, well we must do this right or no fight. They know the rules, no tape on the skin or tape on the ankle. His left hand was heavy just like your camera. Guess what, the officials then said you can go and wrap Bernard hands anyway you want. Trinidad's father and his people didn't want to make the change because they knew they cheated and they tried to cover it up by asking me to wrap Bernard's hands anyway we wish. I wasn't going for that, we have to do this right, they raised hell like you couldn't believe. I said you can do it your way, but there will be no fight if you don't do it right. They said we are going to leave it as it is, so I told them we can reschedule the fight untill next week. They didn't want to do that. This is why we had a delay coming out. When they saw Bernard they tried to ask us to take off just a little tape, but they had a half roll of tape on Trinidad's left hand. This is why people say he has a good left hook. David Reid paid a big price, Trinidad took away the fighter in him. David Reids people were trying to schedule a fight with Bernard and it could have happened if Reid would have won his last fight. I'm glad it never happened."

Hopkins trainer raised a fuss b/c Trinidad put tape directly on his skin.

Margarito put a hardened pad over his knuckles and his wraps were dipped in a plasterlike substance.

Quote from Nazim Richardson in Ring Magazine a while back

Quote:
" Trinidad was an abrasion against the rules. Margaritio downright had a weapon. There is a difference when you say you are playing chess and have your men lined up differently, as opposed to having an extra man on the board. Margarito tried to bring extra men. He had an ACTUAL SQUARE BLOCK OF PLASTER OF PARIS in his knuckle pad. Margarito had a strip over the back of his hand, around his thumb and wrapped two or three times down to the wrist. They told me it was because of a previous injury was why they wrapped it that way. One look and you could tell it wasn't right.

We went back and forth about that. Margaritio's coach said that he expected this out of me because of the Trinidad thing I guess. The original arguement was about the tape being directly on the skin, where it's supposed to be gauze. they went and got one of the Commissioners, and they got the tape off and and asked that Margaritio's people start wrapping Margarito's hand again. Margarito had the left hand done. I saw that but I noticed this pad on a table next to Margarito and when I picked it up to check it out, I noticed it was kinda hard. when I handed the knuckle pad over to the chief commissioner, A BLOCK fell out. I couldn't believe it. I picked up the block. That when I wanted to approve the other hand. They had to take the wraps off the left hand and A BLOCK falls out of the padding of that hand too. I was sitting with these two blocks in my hand. The commission wants them, and I said no way. I told them I was going to give them to anyone but Shane Mosely's lawyer. I put the blocks in a box and handed them to Judd Bernstein"

Two different things IMO...Tito had too much tape on his hands from what I've gathered...Margorito loaded up with a foriegn substance in his wraps.
