Berenice Hernandez, Teen Boxer and Olympic Hopeful
Berenice Hernandez, Teen Boxer and Olympic Hopeful

AIR DATE: August 23, 2011

Berenice Hernandez picked up boxing after girls jumped her at school.  But her means of self defense is now turning into a possible career.  Berenice has a number of wins under her belt, and is aiming to make the 2012 Olympic team -- the first Olympics that allows women's boxing.  After that, she wants to turn pro.  She talks about Olympic dreams, the first time she drew blood in the ring, and how you date boys when you're a 17-year-old with a mean right hook.
