Finally, a boxing promoter has done something to beautify boxing.
Top Rank has made arrangements with Mexican network TV Azteca for Ines Sainz, the gorgeous sportscaster who caused an uproar during a recent visit to the NFL New York Jets camp, to be involved in events surrounding the Nov. 13 Antonio Margarito-Manny Pacquiao PPV bout at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Promoter Bob Arum spoke to his Mexican connection, Tijuana-based promoter Fernando Beltran about adding Sainz to work the microphone during the official weigh in and be involved in other events.
There was an overblown controversy, one I still can't figure out really given that we are in the year 2010, when Sainz showed up at the Jets camp to specifically interview their star quarterback and Mexican American, Mark Sanchez.
Sainz's outfit at the Jets training camp certainly did not seem immodest in any way but she did attract a lot of attention due to her stunning looks.
These football Neanderthals need to get over it already.
In boxing, what you wear doesn't matter.
The NFL's loss then may be boxing's gain.
Boxing writers, we welcome Ms. Sainz to our collegial group.
Mi casa es su casa and like that.
