Introducing Lizette Lopez

Troubled or at-risk youth stumbles upon or is otherwise introduced to the supportive arms of a boxing coach or coaches and into the walls of a boxing gym that in time becomes their second home and potential launching pad to fame or fortune, or more importantly just a better life. This story has been written before because it is a story as old as the hills, or the mountain ranges that border the Salinas, California town that has produced yet another promising fighter about to make her professional debut. Super featherweight Lizette Lopez will make the move from the amateur ranks next Friday, January 21st at the DoubleTree Hotel by Hilton in Sacramento, California, aiming to put the lessons learned, both life and boxing, to good use as she becomes another example of the positive impact the sport can have on a young individual.
