SORT BY Relevancy
With Miguel Cotto vs Saul "Canelo" Alvarez upon us, in a historical sense, it's now time to reflect upon the one of the greatest of all sports rivalries: Mexico vs Puerto Rico in boxing.
The feud goes back roughly 80 years and is tied to fights of various magnitude, and some of the best fighters ever to come out of both Mexico and Puerto Rico participated. From Julio Cesar Chavez and Salvador Sanchez, to Sixto Escobar and Felix Trinidad.
On this week's boxing history offering from Top Men Boxing Radio, Compubox operator and historian Aris Pina and Patrick Connor of The Fight City will wind through all of history's twists and turns when it comes to this great rivalry.

Last week, Chicago Humboldt Park senior pastor, Wilfredo de Jesus of New Life Covenant Church announced he is entering the run for Chicago mayor. Some have asked how money, politics and religion can intertwine for a positive solution and if they ever should. Others feel that faith, business and politics should have clearly defined lines that should never be crossed. Where does the answer to stopping violence, recovering from economic disaster and overhauling an educational system that is not preparing a community for a changing world come from? Wilfredo de Jesus will share his answers on the next episode of the Making God First Monday Show on Money Smart Radio. Join the conversation and hear from a man who has experienced both the joy and sorrow of living, working and growing-up in Humboldt Park to leading one of the nation's fastest growing and largest churches in America.
