Photo Gallery: First Fight 1/13

Felipe Barba watches his son, Chris Barba, 9, of Edmond, warm up before his first fight at The Underground Arena in Oklahoma City, Saturday, June 15, 2013. Chris, who started training with Azteca Boxing Club 1 1/2 months ago, won his first fight. Chris' journey to his first fight started when offered gas money to a family friend if he would take him to the boxing gym. After visiting the gym a few times he told his father Felipe he wanted to box. Chris' father drives from his job in Norman, back to Edmond to take his son to Azteca Boxing Gym on SW 25th Street five days a week. He said it's worth the long round trip because his son enjoys it and is excited to put the time and effort into training. Photo by Bryan Terry, The Oklahoman
