Join Doc and host Danielle Orr for for their monthly feature on great athletes and sport from the Americas and Caribbean and their connection to popular culture and politics.


Boxer Julio Cesar Chavez is perhaps Mexico’s most famous and revered athlete.  His 1993 championship fight knockout  of American Greg Haugen with the largest attendance (132,000) of any boxing match in history in Mexico City’s Estadio Azteca 1993 and his loss to East Los Angeles’ son of immigrants Olympic Golden Boy Oscar de la Hoya in 1996 aroused fascinating and deeply nationalistic feelings in Mexican and American  fans alike.
