The hardest thing about a loss is the one you cannot make up. The Portland Boxing Community lost Josie Samantha Lopez on June 20, 2020. This is a fight we will not be able to get a rematch for. May you rest in Peace, Josie. Thank you for always making time for OSN. Here is the last interview you gave us back in February, 2020.
Miriam B. Dye has been watching her father root for his teams from the day she was born. It is from him that she learned the amazing world of sports. Miriam is a native of Mexico City, but after having lived for almost three decades in the USA she calls Portland home. Miriam is a mother to Tiara- a college student, James - a senior in high school and Nyah- a first grader. A business development and marketing professional, she loves traveling, photography and global cuisine. If she is not writing, in the kitchen cooking with her children or traveling, you can find her bungee cord jumping or art gallery hopping with her husband Steve. She loves sports, writing and values the opportunity to reach OSN's readers every chance she can.
