LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) - The 2024 Olympics are months away, but one Laredoan can already book her ticket for Paris qualifying for Team USA on Thursday.

It’s been a long road through the sport of boxing for Jennifer Lozano and now she sees a major milestone reached and makes some Laredo history in the process.

The young product of LBJ High School climbed between the ropes Thursday against an older and bigger fighter from Canada but as she has done over and over in her career, Lozano showed she had the bigger heart.

To our knowledge, she becomes the first Laredoan, man or woman to ever qualify and to compete in the Olympics and she will do that next summer in the Paris games right on KGNS.

Lozano will be back in the ring on Friday for the Pan American Games Championship where she will try to win gold.
