LUPE GUTIERREZ HAS BOXED HER WAY ONTO THE UNITED STATES WORLD NATIONAL TEAM THAT WILL COMPETE IN TAIWAN NEXT WEEK. LUPE: I STILL AM EXCITED AND EVERYTHING.

I CAUGHT UP WITH TONY THE TIGER LOPEZ. SHE THINKS SHE WILL LIVE HER DREAM. YOU WATCH HER FIGHT AND YOU ARE GOING, OH, MY GOD. FOR HER TIME AND AGE I DO NOT SEE STOPPING HER. HER HEART IS THE SIZE OF TEXAS. DEL: WE WERE WATCHING THIS TOGETHER AND YOU SAID SHE IS QUICK AREA YOU SAID SHE IS FAST. SHE IS QUICK.
