More than 700 boxers from all ages will compete at the Albuquerque Convention Center starting Tuesday. The week-long event gives fighters a chance to qualify for nationals in December.

Las Cruces fighter Austin Trout said USA Boxing literally changed his life.

"When USA Boxing had nationals coming up or a major tournament coming up, I was at home being strict and disciplined." Trout said. "I wasn't out or hanging out. I was working towards that goal."
