Escalante said he grew more and more confused
with the different training styles. He simply did not
click with his new trainers. He went into the ring ...
well, not himself, and not someone new and
transformed and improved, either.
"The two months in Houston were the worst," he
said. "Ronnie Shields is a great trainer. But I only
worked with him for a week. He went to a fight
and turned me over to his assistant. Nothing went
right from there. I didn't like being away from my
family and I didn't like being away from my
hometown. I couldn't work the mitts right with him.
By the time we got to the fight it was all wrong. I
told everyone I was ready and I lied to them all. I
Escalante said his wife, Maria, came out for the
fight and saw how wrong it had all gone before he
even left his locker room.
"Even the way they wrapped my hands was
wrong," he said. "The wraps were way too tight.
My fingers were purple. Then the gloves felt too
tight. My wife saw. I told her I felt great and she
said 'don't lie to me.' She told me to make them
re-wrap my hands. But I just wasn't right --
mentally or physically ... especially mentally. I just
wanted to get the fight over. She finally just went
off to the side and sat down. She could see
everything was wrong."
Escalante is back training in his own gym in
Downtown El Paso. He is back with his wife and
two young daughters. He is trying to shrug off the
storm that hit his career, trying to gain a vision of
that dream again. He said he will move up to 130
pounds, that he might have a fight in late July or
more probably in early August.
