I met Bertha Aracil back in September (ish) of 2011. I saw her fight in the final round for The Metropolitan Championship and she had one of the most exciting fights everyone saw that day. Today, she's training in Colorado Springs – on the US Olympic, women's boxing team.
Aracil is originally from Bronx, NY and trains at D.A.S. Boxing Gym/Atlas Cops & Kids. “I always loved boxing since I was young but didn't know how to go about it, I started [when I was] 27 years old. I love boxing for many reasons: it keeps me out of trouble… it’s therapeutic. And the workout is great!”
Aracil will be training in Colorado Springs until May 20th.

Just kidding. I don't have a staff writer. Yet.
