(FEB 6) On Saturday, female boxing star of Mexico, Mariana "Barbie" Juarez worked "outside" the ring in Queretaro, Mexico, as a narrator [commentator] ringside. As the below photos show...she is at the ringside commentating for the female bout featuring Yazmin Rivas vs. Maria Elena Villalobos.


Mariana Juarez "commentator" at fights

Rivas won by a split and successfully defended her title.

At the fights, Juarez was interviewed afterwards and she talked about women commentating at boxing events.

Mariana:  "Mexico needs women who narrate boxing. So when I retire, I would like to practice this exciting profession. I want to be around boxing forever---- but now I'm like fine wine: a more aging better taste. "

We asked Mariana what made her decide that she would like to be a boxing commentator after she retires from boxing?

Mariana said, "Since I was a child I always liked boxing, whether practicing it, or watching it. But when I watched, I listened carefully to the commentators and I think that would be good for the fans to hear the women's perspective. One of my favorite commentators was Sony Alarcón, who was undoubtedly one of the best that Mexico has."

When asked if this was her first time at commentating...she said, "No, I've done it before. The first time, I was invited to fight where the WBC international super bantamweight title on the line, between Mexican Giovanni Caro and South African Simpiwe Vetyeka. It was a very bloody battle where the winner was the Mexican by unanimous decision. On the same card, I also narrated the fight between Esmeralda Moreno vs. Mary Salinas, where Moreno successfully defended her WBC Silver light flyweight belt for the first time."

"After that, I think the audience liked my style, because Grupo Televisa continued to invite me on several occasions, such as Irma Garcia vs. Janeth Perez for the WBA bantamweight title and now the Yasmin Rivas against Maria Elena Villalobos for the IBF bantamweight title."

Mariana said that after she retires, that in "all areas" of the sport she would like to be involved in.  "It would be impossible for me to get away from this beautiful sport!," added Mariana.
