ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- The Duke City will host the USA Boxing Western Elite Qualifier and Regional Open Championships.
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."
