AGUASCALIENTES, MÉXICO – It’s getting close to fight time and the three time world welterweight champion, ANTONIO "Tony" MARGARITO is very anxious to get in the ring and fight for the first time in over 15 months.

"I have been working in the gym for over one year but it is not the same as getting into the ring and fighting before a crowd, and without headgear. Saturday night can't come soon enough for me," said Margarito today, during an hour-long International Satellite Tour from his hotel in Aguascalientes, México.

Garcia knows he is the underdog, but is confident he will get the victory on Saturday.

"I am very hungry and this is the biggest opportunity of my career. I will prove to everyone that I can beat the best fighters in the world", said Garcia.

The Official Weigh-In is scheduled to begin at Noon local time on Friday at the "Tecate Boxing Tour" site at the fairgrounds.

Headlined by the Margarito-Garcia 10-round super welterweight rumble, the pay-per-view undercard will feature World Boxing Association (WBA) interim super featherweight champion Jorge Solis (38-2-2), of Guadalajara, México, defending his title against top-10 contender and one-time world title challenger Mario Santiago (21-2-1, 14 KOs), of Ponce, Puerto Rico; top-five contenders Urbano Antillion (27-1, 20 KOs), of Maywood, Calif., and Rene "Super Chiroz" Gonzalez (27-1-1, 21 KOs), of Managua, Nicaragua, battle it out in a WBA lightweight title elimination bout; and the pay-per-view debut of flyweight sensation Alfonso López (4-0, 2 KOs), of México City, México, the son of legendary world champion and Mexican icon Ricardo López.

Margarito (37-6, 27 KOs), of Tijuana, Mexico, captured his first world title in 2002, winning the vacant World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight title with a tenth-round TKO of Antonio Diaz. He reigned as WBO champion for five years, successfully defending his title seven times – five by knockout – including victories over world champions Kermit Cintron, Andrew Lewis and Joshua Clottey. After losing the title to Paul Williams in 2007, Margarito dethroned International (IBF) welterweight champion Cintron in a rematch, knocking him out in their 2008 fight. Margarito claimed his third welterweight title when he stopped undefeated WBA welterweight champion Miguel Cotto in the eleventh round of their July 2008 battle, arguably the fight of the year.

Garcia (28-2, 21 KOs), a native of Reynosa, Tamaulipas, México who fights out of McAllen, Texas, enters this fight riding a five-year, 14-bout unbeaten streak. Garcia possesses impressive power in both fists, where 75% of his victories have come by way of knockout and many of those stoppages produced by devastating body shots. During his impressive streak, Garcia has captured the Caribbean Boxing Federation interim welterweight title and the Texas welterweight title.

It attracts almost 7 million visitors to Aguascalientes every year.
