No due process violation for revoking a boxer's professional license

Margarito v. State Athletic Comm'n, B220649, concerned a challenge to a trial court's denial of plaintiff's petition for writ of mandate seeking to compel defendant California State Athletic Commission (Commission) to set aside its order revoking plaintiff's professional boxing license for placing adulterated pads in the hand wraps.  In affirming, the court held that no due process violation occurred and the professional boxing rules allowed the Commission to hold plaintiff strictly liable for the rule violation that occurred here and to revoke his license on that basis.
