LAS VEGAS (LALATE) – Playboy isn’t getting Ines Sainz, Manny Pacquiao is. Ines Sainz turned down a Playboy pictures offer today. Also not in her future are locker room interviews. Sainz with TV Azteca will be “returning to work next week” and will be interviewing Steelers team members. And while Ben Roethlisberger is next on her agenda, she admits she won’t be doing lock room interviews anymore.
At a press conference today, Sainz told news that Playboy doesn’t interest her. But days earlier, Sainz informed news she is joining the Manny Pacquiao vs. Antonio Margarito fight coverage. Top Rank has confirmed that “international television sports reporter” as they refer to Sainz has inked a deal to provide “daily fight week reports”. She will be part of the broadcasters assigned to the Manny Pacquiao vs. Antonio Margarito World Super Welterweight Championship. That match will be Saturday, November 13.
“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. “Inasmuch as 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.”
DuBoef tells news that Sainz also has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. With graduate degrees in tax law and sports business administration, Sainz has previously covered 2004 Olympics in Athens, the past six Super Bowls and the ATP’s World Tour Masters. Top Rank will promote the fight with MP Promotions, Cowboys Stadium and Tecate.
Earlier this fall, Sainz said of the Jets controversy “In my perception, at no moment I felt neither attacked, nor that something rude was being done about me. I went into the lockers and there were comments and games. A fellow journalist told me that he was very sorry things like that were happening, in the surrounding areas where, evidently, there were jokes being made about me.”

NFL Commission Roger Goodell said of the New York Jets incident that “Sainz did not appear concerned, disturbed or troubled by what was going on around her, and that nobody had difficulty doing his or her job.” “She also advised in her interviews that she had not seen or heard any catcalls, sexually explicit or offensive comments or gestures directed at her, and did not believe she was subjected to any improper conduct.”
