16-year-old Vivian “Rocky” Gutierrez hits the speed bag during training at Unanimous Boxing Gym Monday, Feb. 18, 2019, in Chicago. Gutierrez was training for the USA Boxing 2019 Western Elite Qualifier & Regional Open Championships in Nevada and the Chicago Golden Gloves. Her opponent for the local tournament dropped out of the competition held in Cicero. Gutierrez’s next fight is to be determined. “I got her as many fights as I possibly could whenever I could,” said her coach, Lalo Beas. “ItÕs just difficult for women in general to get a lot of fights. You really do have to travel, or end up fighting the same local girl four or five times.”
