This show will be the prelude to the 2012 Olympics, where for the first time ever, Women’s boxing will be included in the olympic game’s categories.   

"I feel very fortunate to be part of this challenge,” said actor and host Paulo Quevedo. "Personally it is very important to publicize that this world renowned sport, will put my country, Mexico on the map for this sport, and I am sure it will be a great “fight”.
