 Sacramento amateur boxer Angel Rios' ultimate goal was to win a gold medal at the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. In 2013, the aspiring olympian won bronze in the National Junior Olympics in the light-welterweight class. “My goal is to be great not good… Doing stuff that not other people do. So if it takes running the extra mile, going the extra round on the bag, sparring, not going out and that’s what it’s going to take… Normal stuff that kids might want to do, I don’t do none of that. I just stay in the house and watch a lot of boxing and just train in the morning and train at night like I am right now," he said.
