Having covered boxing for about a dozen years now, I sometimes come across some work that I’ve done that went unpublished by editors that I at the time submitted work to. The wonderful thing about having the outlet that I now have with Punchline.live is that once in a while whenever I come across some work that I believe the public should enjoy, I can now post it!
Here’s an interview I did with Diego “Chico” Corrales’s Mother Olga Woods in Fallon, Nevada on August 27, 2016 during Let’s Get It On Promotions’s Fallon fights that year! Diego is still very deeply missed by the boxing world, this personally was an interview that I was extra passionate about doing!
