MEXICO'S GREAT DECLINE

boxings_mexican_declineA Generational Transition?

Mexico has  always been said to have produced quality  competitors  in boxing and soccer, but something seems to have changed over recent years.
Surely, Mexico has experienced glory with  home grown boxers Julio Cesar Chavez and Marco Antonio Barrera, as well as legendary Mexican soccer players  Hugo Sanchez and Claudio Suarez.

Unfortunately, morale among many of Mexico's most elite boxers and soccer players seems to be taking a plunge. Let's  take boxer Antonio Margarito for example. Margarito's disappointing loss to Shane Mosley left many of his fans wondering what happened to his world-class chin and powerful punches.  

Athletic morale for Mexico was delivered yet another blow when boxer Jose Luis Castillo shocked millions after his quick loss to Alfonso Gomez.  Castillo, who was once considered by many Mexican's  as a boxer with heart, is now better left unspoken of.
As boxing promoters continue to line up other-wise talented Mexican boxers, it's non-Mexican fighters such as Manny Pacquiao , Floyd Mayweather and even Ricky Hatton who seem to be taking them all down one jab at a time.
Mexico's once elite soccer team doesn't seem to be doing any better either. Sunday’s World Cup game between Mexico and Argentina disappointed millions of Mexicans when  a frantic Mexico quickly fell behind 2-0 and  couldn’t score again.
Will we ever see another Julio Cesar Chavez, Marco Antonio Barrera and Marquez's again?

Will International soccer view Mexico as the once  intense and dynamic  team it once was, or is Mexico facing a scary generational transition of chronic failure?
Only time will tell.
