Q&A: Araceli Martinez Rose

By Boxing Bob Newman

Araceli Martinez-Rose is an award winning journalist from Mexico and author “El Negocio Del Dolor” or “The Business Of Pain.” The Spanish version out now, and the English version will hit the shelves in July. Martinez-Rose interviewed over fifty fighters and world champions to gain their perspective of not only their battles in the ring, but more importantly those battles waged in life. Knowing virtually nothing about the “Sweet Science” before embarking on her own journey in penning this book, Martinez-Rose sees the tome as having the potential to hook not only current boxing enthusiasts, but making new fans of the sport as well. Araceli Martinez-Rose will be at the International Boxing Hall of Fame next week in Canastota as well to promote the book.

In main event action, a scheduled six round junior welterweight bout, Antonio Orozco (10-0, 7KO) blasted out the less than willing Hensley Strachan (5-9-1, 1KO). Orozco dropped Strachan to the canvas for the count with a left hook to the body and Strachan rose to one knee but watched the referee count him out without making any effort to rise to fight on. Strachan, a former Olympian representing his native Bahamas brought little to the table and was nothing more than a punching bag for the relentless San Diego native, Orozco. (more…)

By Boxing Bob Newman

Day two of the IBF’s 28th annual convention opened at 9 a.m. Thursday in the Champagne Room of the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.
