Olympian Marlen Esparza on Missing Out & Retiring from Boxing

I received news a couple of weeks ago, regarding Marlen Esparza and the MAKERS initiative.

The MAKERS: Women Who Make America is a landmark digital video and broadcast initiative from AOL and PBS that chronicles the stories of exceptional women whose pioneering contributions shape our world.

Esparza, the first woman to qualify for the U.S. Olympic boxing team, is now featured on the site. In her interviews she talks about her love for the sport, fighting as a reminder, and how tough it is to be everything, among other conversations.

Visit Makers.com/marlen-esparza to see the rest of her Makers Moments

East Harlem's Own: Hector "Macho" Camacho TV Debut

Son of East Harlem, Puerto Rican retired professional boxer, Héctor "Macho" Camacho is getting his own show business news segment on the popular Univision show "El Gordo y La Flaca, a TMZ-like entertainment program"

The 10-time world boxing champion who beat Sugar Ray Leonard and Roberto Duran will deliver his version of "Macho News." It won't be the first time, he's been on the network either, he participated in the Spanish version of dancing with the stars, ¡Mira Quien Baila!
