East Los Angeles’ Roy “Pitbull” Tapia has been in the gym since he was seven years old, following in the footsteps of his father, Jose Luis Tapia, a former pro boxer.A veteran of over 90 amateur bouts, Tapia earned several medals, but when his father was forced to go back to Mexico, his continued progress in the ring was stalled for over two years.Eventually though, Tapia would find his way back to his true love, making his pro debut in 2011 with a second round knockout of Edgar Flores.Nine more wins have followed, and in his most recent bout on November 13, the unbeaten 23-year-old featherweight scored the biggest win of his career over 50-fight veteran Luis Maldonado.
