Rita Figueroa: Where Are They Now?

(MAR 2) In our first "Where Are They Now" story, WBAN made contact with Rita Figueroa who was seriously injured in 2009 from boxing.  She told WBAN the following:

"Besides being still married with a now 23 year old daughter and still working full time for AT&T, I am still very much involved in boxing. I have been training some amateur fighters as well as working with a few pros. 


Alex Rodriguez and I in the gym

If you recall Francisco "Paco" Rodriguez - the young boxer that passed away shortly after my injury - I am working with his brother Alex Rodriguez as he continues on his quest as a fighter.

"Team La Guera" has four fighters in this years Chicago Golden Gloves tournament starting in a few weeks, and win or lose - I couldn't be more blessed to work with such a great group of people, and very lucky that Sam has taken time to be mentor to me get more experience training in the pro ranks as well helping with fighter Sergio Montes de Oca.

Outside of the gym, I have been doing a lot of running with one of my corner people Angela Gibson and finished the 2010 Chicago Marathon last year. We'll run it again to improve our time.

Thank you so much for all you continue to do for Women's Boxing, and the continued interest in what us "retired" fighters are up to!"
