Video: Ines Sainz Takes Antonio Margarito Over Manny Pacquiao
FanHouse video grapher, Elie Seckbach, caught up to Ines Sainz of TV Azteca, a Mexican television reporter who had been hired by Top Rank Promotions to cover the HBO pay per view televised Nov. 13 clash between WBO welterweight (147 pounds) titlist and seven-division king Manny Pacquiao and ex-champion Antonio Margarito for the vacant WBC junior middleweight (154 pounds) belt at The Dallas Cowboys Stadium.
Sainz made national headlines in September, when she said the New York Jets' players and an assistant made her feel uncomfortable in their locker room where a few players made catcalls as she waited with two male co-workers to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez, who is of Mexican descent.
Sianz also believed that an assistant coach seemed to deliberately throw footballs to players near where Sainz was standing on the sideline during practice.
Sainz has been covering the fight promotion, even conducting an interview backstage with Pacquiao prior to his recent appearance in Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Below are some excerpts from Sainz's interview with Seckbach:

Ines Sainz: Well, I think that he's great. He's in the best shape of his whole career.

Margarito, of course. I'm from Mexico, and I think that right now, it's time for the Mexican boxer. So, he's going to win.
What do you think of Manny Pacquiao after watching him train?
Well, I think that he's training very hard, also, and he's a professional, too. So, I really believe that it's going to be a great, great fight. But, my heart is with the Mexican boxer.
Do you have a prediction?
No. I think that they winner here is going to be the boxers, because the fight is going to be amazing. And, I really believe that Margarito has a really good chance to come out with the victory.
