in boxing after he found old video tapes of his father Jorge's amateur fights.
He then summarized his own amateur and professional career with several interesting
and entertaining stories sprinkled throughout. He spoke about his mother Maria's
influence on him and how she placed an emphasis on getting an education.

Sports Energy News is a tabloid newspaper that is published monthly by well-known sports personality Mike Piquette, Cornwall Ontario. Mike first came up with the idea of a local sports newspaper about in 1998 while volunteering in minor hockey and working as business manager for the Cornwall Colts. Initially the plan was to build a hockey-specific paper, but with so many other things happening twelve months of the year, it was decided to open it up to sports in general.
