Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez enjoyed a highly successful theater debut dubbed:“ Sometimes I'm Called Maravilla”. During the show, the former two-division world champion describes some of his most magical moments inside and outside of the ring.
The performance will be presented in the Holiday Theater in Cordoba, Argentina.
The Web portal Ciudad.com had an exclusive chat with the former champion after his 1st presentation.
- How do you feel about your debut?
- It was great. It was attended by lots of generous people. It was a nice feeling the moment the show ended with an ovation from the public. I didn’t expected it. It was better than I thought.
-Were you nervous?
-Always. I think it is something normal. Within boxing I was more relaxed.
-Did you have audience members from the sports world?
Some local fighters and soccer players attended. They were all happy with my performance.
- What demands more concentration: a fight or a show?
- Probably they both have some similarities. Boxing is a continuous performance until the conclusion of the fight. In entertainment you can be hurt, but it's not the same as being hurt in the ring. If I have the choice, I prefer not to receive punches.
How do you get prepared to entertain fans?
I wrote the play myself. The performance is one of hour of me telling some stories: some of them with humor, others with wit and poetry, plus drama. I tried to make it a great passion play."
