SULEM URBINA (Flyweight 112lb/51kg)
Hometown: Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico
Age: 21

Sulem is representing Mexico in the Olympic trials. As a kid she was always into sports, but initially her mom didn’t encourage her boxing. Sulem says “there are ... people who don’t expect me to be a boxer because of how girly I am.” But for Sulem, the “fire inside” keeps her boxing. “You just feel everything burning,” says Sulem.  “There’s nothing more I like than this.”  

Sulem says in a fight, she actually imagines that her opponent is her coach, the guy sitting in the corner, calling out orders to her. Listen to her talk about it above.
