    Default Luis Resto applies for a trainer's license. Yes, THAT Luis Resto.

    Luis Resto Plans To Apply For Second's License in NYC - Boxing News


    I say license him. He has paid his debt to boxing and to society. Margarito did nearly the same thing and he's making millions. Resto is a poor, destitute, uneducated man who only knows boxing.

    He deserves a second chance.

    Sure.. give him one.. why not? Top Rank left him for dead, broke and to never fight again but Top Rank will schmoooozz over a little here and there and make the whole NYSAC ordeal over an eye.. Margo should have been banned over plaster... but hey when your a super rich man named "Arum" you own boxing... proof is in Margo.

    shit Margarito only was banned for a year and has gotten two blockbuster fights back to back, if he "deserves" a license to fight, give Resto his license to train

    I say yes, nearly 30 years is punishment enough.

    I'm glad to see that there are so many sensible and compassionate boxing nerds on this forum.

    It irritates me when people are so unforgiving, as if none us make mistakes..

    Resto cheated and got punished for it... Time for another chance.

    I think he should be allowed a license, he's had almost 30 years and he doesn't know anything apart from boxing. He seems like he regrets what happened in a documentary I watched a while back. Like some of you said before if Margarito is allowed to fight after just one year and make millions, then Resto should be allowed a trainers license after almost 30 years.

    Wisdom, compassion and courage are the three universally recognised moral qualities of men.

    Resto absolutuly should get his licence back, and an immediate shot at floyd (after a fight or two he'd call him out like everyone else anyway ) Margo got a freakin title shot for cheating so this guy got ripped.

    I am going against popular opinion here but here's my take on this.

    I would separate the Margarito injustice with that of the case of Luis Resto. Not because something wrong was committed with regards to allowing Margarito to fight again, doesn't mean that fairness will be served by allowing Resto to get a trainer's license. The difference is that he DESTROYED A LIFE, the life of a promising boxer which led to his demise.

    If it's up to me, I will have that license commission get a feedback from the Collins family. They are the victims here, not Resto. If they are alright in him getting a trainer's license, that means they have forgiven him and had put this incident behind them. Then he should be given that license. If they object, that means the pain is still there after all these years. Then he should not get that license. Resto is still alive and he can do any other jobs not related to boxing whereas the Collins family loss a loved one. At least give them the courtesy to find out how they feel about this issue.

    Let the Collins family have a say on the issue. If they are unforgiving, it's because they have the right to.

    Yes but Collins family's weigh-in wll only be a token gesture as the official ruling certainly could not rest on what THEY say. I say let them put their oopinion into it of curse, and let Resto make a statement to the boxing world about what he did and how officials can guard against that in the future. Perhaps he should be required to give a talk about what happens to young fighters who just go along with intimidating and/or crooked trainers like Panama. But I say let him have a license.

    And let Pete Fucking Rose into the Hall of fame, will ya?!
