It is the home of a stunning young woman. Patricia Cuevas while stunning the crowd at Armed Forces boxing championships getting national attention was surprised herself as an old face in local boxing barely beat her at San Antonio Regional Golden Gloves. This moment revealed the catch about having 5 potential national champions the catch is well 2 are same gender same weight class. Well there is some unfinished business. (Make that 4 Kendo Castenada reports he broke his foot) Correction Kendo played an April's fools joke!  Well more work for me!  So the boxer that does not look like one has a date to deal with that unfinished business with Marlen Esparza scheduled to settled May 15.
