Miriam Gutiérrez is already European lightweight champion. A belt that got proud at the Casino Gran Madrid, where he returns this Friday to continue his journey to the World Cup. Opposite will be the Venezuelan Mariam Moreno, with the WBA Gold Championship in play, an unofficial qualifier to become a contender for the world title held by the British Katie Taylor, "the number one boxing world" in the words of Jero Garcia, the coach of Miriam .
The life of the boxer of Torrejón has changed a lot in recent months. She has gone from being a gardener in the town hall of her city to being a woman councilor. She has been collaborating for several years with the Jero García Foundation in the fight against violence as the person in charge of gender violence. "We must recognize that Nacho (Vázquez), the mayor, and Martin Criado, the Sports Councilman (and former player of the Real Madrid youth academy), have gone out of their way to help her in her sports career. When asking Nacho for his candidacy, he did not hesitate. Regardless of the match, it was suggested that he was going to be able to help a lot more people than he did and he threw himself on his head, "explains Jero.
The boxer helped through the Jero García Foundation, sometimes accompanying girls who suffered gender violence, "but above all by preventing talks throughout Spain, in schools, with training to avoid gender violence with teachers, with monitors "says his trainer. "She has been the spearhead in the fight against violence in my foundation, now she has the possibility of being the deputy mayor and councilor of the woman in Torrejón and allows her to reach many more women," she adds.
Miriam asked for a leave of absence in her work to dedicate herself fully to the Town Hall, but that has not prevented her from continuing with her preparation. «Now she has a calmer life and the physical effort is less», explains Jero García. Although its organized, "almost Soviet" character, says the preparer, it helps to distribute the time. "She has been a gardener, she has been a mother, she has been a woman, she has been a housewife, although co-responsibility in her house is brutal, if it had not been impossible, and to all that you add the work with my foundation and be a boxer", Jero relates. With everything Miriam has been able and with everything still can now from the Town Hall. "He's fine with a lot of desire, it's his dream to play a World Cup and he sees it closer and closer", says Jero. Although he is aware that if the rival is Katie Taylor will have to leave Spain to dispute it.
Miriam is "the Queen", the star of the evening, but in the semifund match, Ardi Rodriguez, one of her "brothers" of the Boxing School, will try to retain for the fifth time the Spanish super bantamweight title against David "Maravillita "Sanchez.
