Melissa McMorrow spars with Jamie Mitchell in preparation for Juarez battle
by Blanca Gutierrez
February 19, 2014


(FEB 19) Last Saturday at the B Street Gym in San Mateo, California, world champion "Mighty" Melissa McMorrow had her last sparring session before she left for Puebla,  Mexico, in her anticipation to fight Mariana "Barbie" Juarez on February 22, 2014.

Top heavyweight pro boxer Martha Salazar and I met PAL and Beautiful Brawlers champion Jamie Mitchell to work her corner against the tough McMorrow at this time is completely in fight mode!

McMorrow said, “This is what they signed up for to come out here and spar with me and when you spar me you are signing up to get hit.”

Jamie Mitchell who both Salazar and I, consider to be one of the best amateurs in the game came through for us and drove many miles out here to spar with McMorrow.

Mitchell is "quality sparring" and she brings it every time. Mitchell is tricky, her foot work is incredible, and she has a very aggressive style of boxing. What I like about Mitchell is that she is mentally focused and physically,  in great condition.  Mitchell really made a difference with McMorrow’s sparring.

Another boxer,  young USA Boxing silver medalist in the youth Nationals, Odalys Camacho was more than willing to come out, throw down and do the work necessary to help get McMorrow ready.

 “Camacho has come a long way. I had the opportunity to be her second at the USA Boxing youth nationals and she was impressive."

National champion Marisol Lopez and she gave National Champion Caitlin Orosco a run for her money losing a split decision in the championship bout in Reno, NV.

She has about 40 amateur fights and has come a long way.’ Camacho has the speed and stamina needed to get that work in with McMorrow. Camacho and her coach “get it”.

Camacho is basically returning the favor since McMorrow gave her sparring before the Youth Nationals but with that favor comes experience working with the Flyweight world champion. It’s a win-win situation for all of us involved.

After 5 - 3 minute rounds with Camacho and 6 very aggressive 3 minute rounds with Mitchell, we all hung out for a bit and talked about the upcoming fight with Juarez.

Melissa McMorrow is smart and experienced and knows what she needs to do to win this bout against Juarez who is a pioneer in this sport. Camacho is young but she has goals to be an Olympian, a Professional and a world champion.

We love this little ones drive and we are going to support her 1000% because she comes out and is considered a big part of our team. Mitchell also shares goals of Olympics and going pro one day. We absolutely want to support Mitchell because we believe she is going to be one of the biggest names in boxing. Mitchell is a mom and lives hundreds of miles away.  Odalys also lives hundreds of miles away but they took the time out to help us out and we all love them for it. We have a bond with each and other that is taking all of the boxers to the next level. We don’t just consider these girls great sparring, We consider them family.

Martha Salazar and I feel blessed to be a part of and see some of the changes in boxing. Although many more changes need to be made, we always give our best efforts in helping all of our local professional and amateur women out. We love what we do and we love our champion Melissa McMorrow.

Mariana Juarez will not have easy work come February 22nd. I hope she is ready for what’s in store for her. Flyweight World Champion Melissa McMorrow is going to bring the fight to her, it will be a war. McMorrow knows to win, she has to win decisively.
