Why i love the sport of boxing............
I grew up with 5 Uncles as up and coming fighters and 2 of them became CHAMPS! Tony Lopez and Loretto Garza! And along with JCC Sr, they were all my Granfathers, Tios, Tias, cousins would talk about when i was a kid, besides the Raiders & Niners that is. I remember going to Panthers Stadium, memorial auditorium and the original Arco Arena to watch them fight. And when they each became Champs, my familia went crazy!!! I started boxing because of them, but due to street fights, and all the trouble i used to get into and what not, my budding career came to a halt @14yo due to injuries. And although they are long retired, my kids watch their fights on tv. I have most of their fights on dvd now. My boys also watch damn near every HBO, Showtime and PPV fight thats on, and they love it!
