The gym where he trained was buried
Mexico City- Just 20 years ago, Ricardo’El Finito’ López left early on Tuesday, September 11, to go for a run in Central Park. The terrorist attack on his hotel is already registered. It is located just three blocks away from the Petronas Twin Towers.
The “Finito”, farewell contest will be held at Madison Square Garden in New York, September 15.
The realization that the gym he trained the day before-next to the World Trade Center-was buried in rubble, shocked the Mexican boxer and his coach Ignacio Beristáin.
He added, “I have no doubt God permits us to live again.”
“We saw all the terrorist acts that changed the world, and we brought a little or a lot of fear there because we didn’t know what happened. Lopez explained that we were sitting in our hotel and watching TV. Lopez said that the embedded airplane was similar to a commercial advertisement. However, when the tower collapsed, it was chaotic and strong.
Do you recall the September 11th attacks?
I am sad for the many people who have passed away. We were there on September 11, 2001. After running to Central Park, we returned to our hotel.
We are located only minutes from the Twin Towers. South Tower Suites hotel is where I am located on the 60th Floor. I have breakfast with the whole team, “Nacho” and my companion, Dr. Durán, This is what we saw while watching TV, we saw another plane arrive and embed in the next tower.
What were you doing when the tower fell?
“What is it?” It was an advertisement for a company, so we thought it was just a commercial. But then, the tower fell and many people were trapped in a dust cloud.
It’s almost like fighting. It’s difficult. I want to return to Mexico but the American plane is unable to get in. The phone signal suddenly stops. The curfew, son, is too ugly. ”
You are implying that the gym you had trained in on September 10 has vanished?
It was buried. In fact, it was buried on the day that our training gym was destroyed by the tower’s collapse. Many people and many items were buried in the rubble after it collapsed. This is quite shocking.
We intended to (go to the gym) the next day, but then we stopped doing the exact same thing. We were training in the hotel. Don King encouraged us to stay. Although the battle was scheduled to take place, it was postponed and was difficult with many tears.
