New York State Athletic Commission Open Meeting Scheduled for November 22

NYC – Members of the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) will hold a public meeting at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 22, at 123 William Street in New York City. The meeting will be simultaneously webcast in Albany at One Commerce Plaza, 99 Washington Avenue.

The Commission will meet to reach a determination on the license application of Antonio Margarito, which was submitted to the Commission on October 31. During an open meeting on Friday, November 18, the Commission expressed its concerns regarding injuries suffered by Mr. Margarito and directed the boxer to submit to a medical examination by a doctor of its choosing. The exam, to which Mr. Margarito’s representatives agreed to comply, is intended to enable NYSAC to fully ascertain the totality of Mr. Margarito’s medical condition and his fitness to be in the ring.

Tuesday’s open meeting will immediately follow an evidentiary hearing during which NYSAC will hear the results of that examination.
