Oscar and Juan
Oscar Cantu said he had the pleasure and Honor to meet this wonderful Champion, Juan Manuel Marquez at the fights in Pharr, Tx. Juan showed everybody in the building why he is a fan favorite. (He even asked Lil Oscar if he needed help carrying his belts and then grabbed 2 of them).
Juan Sanchez Forever in Our Hearts
Here is a short interview with our beloved, Juan Sanchez. He was a modest man, but if you read his answers carefully, you’ll see the stuff Champions are made of. He stands as an example of how someone can build and rebuild a life while serving as a guiding light to others.
Jill: Tell us about your journey to America.
Juan: I was born in Cuba the son of a lawyer. When Castro took over in 1959 I left Cuba for the U.S with my younger sister. My father, mother, and my other sister could not leave Cuba until 1961.
