A local amateur boxer comes very close to making the U.S. Olympic team.

Ramon Acosta Jr., fighting in the 152 pound Elite division, won his first four fights at the Last Chance qualifyer for the U.S. Olympic boxing team. But the 18-year-old from Two Countries Boxing Club lost to the top-ranked boxer in the country by split decision. This event was at Oxnard, California, home of the Cowboys training camp.
