Inés Sainz Will Stay Out Of Locker Rooms

When Inés Sainz returns to work next week, the TV Azteca reporter will be conducting her interviews outside the locker room.

“I’m not going into the locker rooms anymore,” Sainz said Thursday at a news conference. “It’s not a good place right now for me. I don’t want to be in there.”

Since her incident last month at the New York Jets practice facility, Sainz has taken a break from reporting. After a stop in Pittsburgh, Sainz will return to the Jets facility (Please be on your best behavior, fellas.) before visiting the New England Patriots.

“I need to wait one month to work again because I don’t want to be the focus,” Sainz said. “I’m not looking for that kind of publicity. It affects my career and development in the States.”

She’s received nearly a dozen job interviews and an offer to pose nude in Playboy, which she promptly turned down.

One offer that Sainz did accept was from Top Rank Boxing to serve as a reporter for the Manny Pacquiao-Antonio Margarito fight on Nov. 13 in Dallas.

“Inés will be a valuable addition in providing sports fans unique stories on the fighters and the event during fight week and the fight broadcast itself  that we have never had before,” said Todd duBoef, president of Top Rank. “She is bilingual and has the experience of covering major sporting events worldwide and has interviewed the top athletes in those events, she will help enhance our coverage of Pacquiao vs. Margarito and attract a wider audience to the sport of boxing.  Top Rank feels very fortunate to have her for this event.”

Sainz will offer live reports from the official press conferences, media workouts, and the official weigh-in.
