Future Olympians: West Eugene Boxing Club
EUGENE, Ore. - Three local 10 year olds - Demarion Ingram, Brady Kierstad and Alexie Wolfe - will soon be fighting for a shot at a regional championship in Boise, Idaho.
After months and years of training, the trio has worked with one another to prepare themselves for this moment.
The group trains with coach Myron Johnson at the West Eugene Boxing Club.
Being on the big stage can be a little nerve-wracking, but once these fighters are in the ring, the anxiety starts to fade away.
"Before I start a fight I get really nervous," Alexie Wolfe said, "but once I get in the ring I'm not scared anymore. Because I'm in the ring and that's where I trained everything."
