When Fox News Latino approached me about doing an op-ed, it was going to be a one-shot deal. However, after the Ines Sainz column ran, the site’s editors were really pleased with the piece, both in how it turned out and in the traffic it generated.

I was then approached about doing a second column, ideally on boxing. It was perfect timing considering the upcoming Manny Pacquiao-Antonio Margarito bout.

I wanted to take a slightly different angle on the story given all the coverage that the fight’s already received. I opted to look at not just the idea that Margarito was seeking to redeem himself after his tampered hand wraps scandal, but to also just delve into how hard redemption/rebuilding your public image is for an athlete.

The editors were happy with my story, and going forward, I will be contributing sports columns on a regular basis.
