By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - In a recent interview conducted by Gabriel Montoya of MaxBoxing, trainer Ignacio "Nacho" Beristain was quick to dismiss the clichéd notion that boxing is dying with the advent of MMA. Below is an excerpt, followed by a link to the interview.

“It is very difficult because boxing is an extraordinary show,” said Beristain, sitting back with his cigar and contemplating the future. “It will not die in Mexico. A lot of people attack it. There are many detractors but if you go to the history of boxing, you will see that boxing was very popular in the first Olympic Games. What has to disappear- and it is a little bit difficult- are the thieves we have in boxing.”

Montoya really got some great quotes out of a living legend. Nacho is just an amazing person and his insight and knowledge of the sport ranks with the best of the best.

Of course he also talks about Manny Pacquiao vs. his fighter, Juan Manuel Marquez and their upcoming battle on November 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev.
