Tamerlan Tsarnaev the older of the two brothers who police say planted bombs that killed three and wounded scores more earlier this week at the Boston Marathon had an amateur boxing background, according to multiple newspaper reports.

The 26-year-old died during a shootout with police early Friday morning, police told the media.

He debuted in 2004 in the Greater Lowell (Mass.) Novice Golden Gloves, winning a novice title at 178 pounds, according to the Lowell Sun. That newspaper also notes Tsarnaev as competing in national Golden Gloves tournaments in 2009 and 2010. That coincides with a Boston.com article that links to results from 2009, when Tsarnaev competed in the 201-pound division and lost.

[QUOTE=Simone]He's Chechen, not Russian.[/QUOTE] So when he's doing something bad he's Chechen now but when he's doing the right things and winning titles, he's Russian. SMH the double standards never cease to amaze me.
