WBC Super Featherweight Champion - Marco Barrera

Not a normal subject for me but when I see champions, I tend to admire them and their skill. Tonight I caught a re-run of a recent fight Marco Antonia Barrera fought at the MGM Grand. After the fight was over and an announcer was asking Marco questions, Marco held his toddler in his arms in the ring. He answered the questions in English far better than I could have in Spanish. And then he said, "Sorry for my English. I try very hard." I appreciate his efforts. A champion does shine through. On his web site Marco Barrera, there is a quotation: "Never doubt the will of a champion." Okay, I admit it, I don't know much about boxers today and who's champion of this or that. I do like good spirit. What a good showmanship attitude.

Ok, I'm not much into knowledge of boxers, but I do know that Manuel from Fawlty Towers really tried hard with his English, too, and Basil knew it as well.
