Lakota Nation Invitational welcomes boxers

Boxers will step into the ring today at the 30th annual Lakota National Invitational in Rapid City, South Dakota.

Young men and women are competing in 26 scheduled bouts. "When somebody hits me, it motivates me to get in there and hit her back," Ashley Ressett , 20, tells The Rapid City Journal.

Theron Pappas, 27, found boxing as a way to escape from gangs and drugs. He credits the sport with turning his life around.
