Find out more about this beautiful Boxing WAG in our story below and don’t forget to check out the photos and video after the jump.
Michelle’s husband was not just once a Welterweight champion, but also a lightweight and Light Welterweight champion that was until last year when he lost to Shane Mosley via Knockout (37-6), but messy stuff came afterward when one of Mosley’s people noticed some weird pasty stuff on his handstraps which later turned out to be some kind of “plaster-like substance”. He said he was unaware, but his trainer apologized for the terrible incident, both were not allowed to box in the U.S for a year. This horrible accident destroyed him, so how did he survive? Michelle was by his side and kept him on his feet. During that time her hubby was not allowed to fight in the United States, Michelle traveled to Tijuana, Mexico where together along with the love and support of their families and fans got his strength back to face his upcoming challenge, Manny Pacquiao.
Ever since they got married about 12 years ago they have become inseparable, she would be at the gym every day no matter what. Mrs. Margarito is one good looking lady fans see with the three time champion. She does not speak English very well, but this never stopped her from giving an interview where she talked about how motivated her hubby was, how proud she felt to be his wife, her thoughts about her hubby’s trainer Roberto Garcia who she considers a great trainer and wonderful person. For the Margaritos the time they spend away from the U.S. was a time where their marriage became stronger, the families’ support was a daily dose of courage and to go through this new beginning together is overwhelming, it seems like just yesterday Michelle was at that horrible hearing where her hubby was banned and humiliated for what many considered was a set up.
She was once again at a hearing this year when he requested his license to box again in the U.S, which you can see her here and also here. In November you will get a chance to see her once again cheering for her husband, with the same love she has always been.
