California's Gonzalez, who has won 24 of 25, reflected on his unsuccessful world title challenge against Shakur Stevenson: "Sometimes it's just not your night. I work hard and train hard for every fight.

"I don't take nobody lightly. It just simply wasn't my night. I rebounded with a win over Miguel Marriaga, and I think I showed the public I'm here to fight the best out there.

"It's not an easy fight. It's a tough fight. Navarrete has a style that's very unique, very hard to figure out, and that's why he's a champion. I trained really hard, and I'm coming with everything. I'm planning on leaving with that belt.

Mexico promotes indigenous people as it erases memory of Columbus

  Mexico promotes indigenous people as it erases memory of Columbus Mexico is erasing symbols of Christopher Columbus as it works to give indigenous people who suffered during the Spanish colonial era a bigger say in today's world. Tuesday is a national holiday in Spain marking the anniversary of the "discovery" of the Americas by Columbus in 1492. But in Mexico, authorities talk about the "Day of the Pluricultural Nation." Columbus, and a statue of him, are at the heart of a national debate in Mexico over state "indigenismo" -- the policy of promoting a more prominent role for indigenous people in society.
