Eyewitness This: 9-year-old SoCal boxer headed to Junior Olympics, 'Toy Story 4' hits theaters, report ranks oceans' worst plastic polluters

SoCal boxer headed to National Junior Olympics

Ethan Quiroga, 9, has only been boxing for a few years - but his hard work training five days a week has paid off.

The 4th grader is the youngest boxer from the Century Sheriff's Boxing gym headed to the National Junior Olympics later this month in Wisconsin.

Ethan lives in South Gate with his dad and two brothers and says he took up boxing because he was being bullied in school. But he never thought it would turn into a passion that has helped him in every part of his life.

The gym is part of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Youth Activities League, a non-profit that teaches kids how to box and coaches them in tournaments. Sheriff Alex Villanueva presented Quiroga with a check for $1,000 dollars to help him cover expenses at the Junior Olympics.
