Mexico's contribution to the sport of boxing is amazing.
Realised last night that some of the best young fighters in the sport are either Mexican or Mexican Americans - Canelo, Mares, Santa Cruz, Mikey Garcia, Rios.
Then consider some of the ATG fighters they've produced - Chavez Sr, Salvardor Sanchez, Morales, Barrera, JMM, Ricardo Lopez, DLH.
Even some not quite ATGs like Castillo, Vargas, Margarito were excellent fighters who always brought it.
They've also been involved in some of the best fights ever - Castillo vs Corrales, Erik's trilogies with MAB and Pac, Izzy/Rafa trilogy, JCC Sr vs Meldrick.
They have an amazing boxing culture and identity and in many ways, are the lifeblood of this sport.
And this is coming from someone who comes from England and has no link to Mexico at all.
