Former IBF World Lightweight champion, Rafael Ruelas, came on TheBoxingBar.com’s podcast last night to talk about his career in boxing. Ruelas defeated Freddie Pendleton on February 19, 1994 at the Great Western Forum in Inglewood to win the title. Rafael faced many of the top fighters of his time including Jorge “El Maromero” Paez, Rocky Lockridge, Livingstone Bramble, Kostya Tszyu, and Oscar De La Hoya. A few weeks ago I got to see and speak to him and his brother Gabriel and they still look sharp. Last night Rafael stated that he has passed physicals to make a comeback fight and would be willing to. Thanks for coming on Rafa!

    I had the pleasure to have Ventura County boxing trainer Ruben Juarez on our podcast for TheBoxingBar.com. Juarez grew up in Ventura, CA and got into boxing to get away from hanging out in the streets. Juarez won many big amateur tournaments almost making the 1992 Olympic team, but was eliminated by the eventual 1992 Olympic gold medalist Oscar De La Hoya in the qualifiers. Ruben worked as the coach for the boxing program at Ventura’s Westpark Recreation Center. In July 1993, he was shot in the stomach area by an Oxnard gang member. “They removed six feet of intestine from me”, said Juarez during our interview yesterday. In time Juarez, would be working with all the talent from the famed La Colonia Boxing Club which is in the neighborhood of the gang he was shot by. “There were never any issues there, because I was working with the youth”, explained Juarez. He has worked with Robert Garcia, Fernando Vargas, Rolando Reyes, Jose & Mario Aguiniga, Carlos “El Terror” Madrigal, ect.     Today, Juarez works full-time for the County of Ventura, owns K.O. Tacos catering service, and still works with boxers. Cheers to a real Ventura County legend “K.O.” Ruben Juarez!

“King” Carlos Palomino came on TheBoxingBar.com to interview a few weeks ago for our podcast. The International Boxing Hall of Famer talked about his start in boxing and his biggest bouts. On June 22, 1976 Palomino became the World Welterweight champion defeating Englishman John Stracey in Wembley. After seven successful title defenses, Palomino lost the title via split decision to Wilfred Benitez in Puerto Rico. In his next fight, he took on the Latino boxing icon “The Hands of Stone” Roberto Duran but lost by decision and announced his retirement in 1979. During his career, Palomino was attending college to get a degree which included an acting class. In 1977, he was offered to come out in one of the first episodes of a new show that would become popular called “Taxi” that starred ex-boxer Tony Danza. In the 80’s and 90’s, he would come out in many shows like Buck Rogers, Highway to Heaven, Knight Rider, Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blue, and several movies and commercials as well. Almost eighteen years later, Palomino made a comeback to the sport for five pro fights in 1997. Today, Carlos still works out every day and says he is working on several projects including a movie about his life titled “Palomino”. Please check out this interview and get to know “King” Carlos Palomino!

Last year I took a few online college classes for the first time in my life. Chicano Studies being one of those classes. One of the homework assignments we were given was to watch a documentary called “Stolen Education” a 2013 film about Chicano children in South Texas having to remain in the first grade for three years prior to the mid 1950’s for being bilingual. The mother of Dr. Enrique Aleman, who passed away in 2002, was one of those children. He did not know anything about what she went through until shortly after her death. In 2010, Aleman and Rudy Luna go back to the small town of Driscoll, TX to talk to many of the residents who were around at that time to get some answers in making this film. On September 1st there will be a new law passed in Texas, preventing these types of subjects from being taught in their schools. Dr. Enrique Aleman came onto TheBoxingBar.com this week to talk about this for our “Outside of the Ropes” page. It was my first interview on a topic like this, so check it out!

“Sweet” Jose Aguiñiga reached a record of  33-0, then his career just stopped. Why would he end his boxing career with a record like that? Living in Oxnard, at that time, I had heard almost every rumor you can think of as to why he stopped fighting. It wasn’t until yesterday that I finally got a chance to ask him directly on my podcast. Shortly after, in a heartbroken way, he said he was finally able to say out loud for the first time, “I’m retired.” I will be posting the interview sometime this weekend. Keep checking the site.
