Through the Tragic Floods of Colorado Emerges a Triple Threat
September 18, 2013


(SEPT 18) Despite the devastation of the floods here in Colorado and the personal loss and damage the waters have caused to their Coach Roman Sanchez and his family home which amount to thousands of dollars for repairs which will hinder his efforts in running his gym.

A ray of sunshine has appeared in the like of 3 of his promising young female boxing students, whom despite everything that has happened in regards to the floods are on a mission to give their coach and their fellow peers a much needed positive inspiration of continuing to fight and work for their dreams out of The Champions Boxing Gym in Thornton, Colorado.

These young ladies have dreams of being Olympians and representing their Country and going to college and maybe being Pro one day.

The youngest of the three Aaliyah Salazar, took up boxing in memory of her uncle former pro boxer Tony Duran.

Aaliyah states “that boxing inspires her, and it’s fun and she gets great exercise out of it!” Her goals are Olympics and one day being a Pro like her uncle Tony Duran. Her school friends think it’s really cool that she can defend herself. Aaliyah also, states” that winning her first fight was great feeling and all the hard work pays off and she is looking forward to winning many more to fulfill her dreams”!

Makayla Saiz, is a sophomore in High School, who loves boxing as being a stress relief, and she totally loves the sport and feels a lot of women should join boxing for the workouts and the building of self-esteem and confidence. Makayla also feels that just by doing this hard sport of boxing and trying as a boxer you deserve a lot of respect for that.

Makayla’s quote of being the ring for the first time was “ It’s nerve racking but you get over it when you’re in the ring, you can just feel all the excitement and the rush, and you look over to the other corner and you see the other girl in the corner and yes you are scared but once the bell rings it’s the best moment of your life.”

Makayla’s, goals are: Olympics and a college degree to become a therapist to work with sexually abused children.

Mericia Quinones, at age 20 loves the sport of boxing and she feels that boxing builds mental, physical and self-esteem within one’s and it is a very beautiful sport!

Mericia’s goals are to continue in college and get her degree’s in political science and sociology for a double major and one day become a law student to become an Immigration Lawyer.

She wants help all the minorities, especially the children that have been impacted by all the Immigration laws.

As for boxing she would love to compete in the Olympics either represent USA or Mexico due her families roots being from Durango, Mexico, and maybe become a Pro one day.

The ray of sunshine for Coach Roman Sanchez & Champion Boxing Gym are bright despite the personal hardships he and his family are going through right now, just as many gyms around the country many are looking for sponsors and donations etc.

We at WBC Cares Colorado have stepped up with a donation to Coach Roman and his family, and if you’d like to be a part of helping Coach Sanchez and his family and keeping not only these three young ladies dreams alive along with 19 other of their teammates please feel free to donate equipment or funds to:

Champions Boxing LLC. 8520 N. Washington St. Suite A Thornton, CO 80229
