Margarito surgery successful

"So when can I start running?" asked Antonio Margarito moments following successful surgery today to repair a fractured right orbital bone at Methodist Hospital in Dallas, Texas.

Sergio Diaz, manager of Margarito, said "the doctor told us everything went perfect - no complications of any kind. There is nothing wrong with his right eye..

"Antonio is such a warrior. The first thing he asked was 'when can I start running' and we told him he has to relax for awhile," Diaz said. "For sure, at least 60 days of no contact of any kind in a gym."

Margarito said "I fought as hard as I could against a great champion in Manny Pacquiao."

Margarito will stay at Methodist Hospital this evening. He is with his wife Michelle, managers Sergio Diaz, Francisco Espinoza and chief trainer Robert Garcia. Margarito and his team will take a flight to Los Angeles on Wednesday.
