The 2019 Texas State Championship for boxing goes to Ivy Enriquez, a 12-year-old El Paso girl.

Enriquez is no stranger to winning. She adds this belt to her four national championship belts for boxing.

According to KTSM,she started boxing as something to keep her busy during the off-season of her soccer team. It quickly became apparent that she had a knack for duking it out in the ring.

“I’m really proud of her and what she’s accomplished as of right now,” Enriquez’s dad told KTSM, “so I just see a great future for her if she keeps on cause she dedicates herself for this sport 100 percent.”

Her family and coaches think she could be a future Olympian.
