Then, Patricio Lerzundi remembers José "Chegüí" Torres, who died recently, at the age of 72, in Puerto Rico. The legendary light heavyweight world champ was a valuable sports critic, prolific writer and columnist for El Diario La Prensa.

And, finally, we go to Brooklyn to visit Juan Carlos Pinto, a Guatemalan painter, muralist and political-cultural activist of Maya-Chorti origin, who through his art, which usually has a communitarian essence, seeks, among other causes, to promote the rights of undocumented Latinos and to ban whaling in his country.
