Boston Marathon suspects

This combination of undated file photos shows Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, left, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev possessed quick feet atypical of a boxer fighting in the 201-pound weight class. His strength and toughness were in the same mold as other Russian heavyweight boxers.

Tsarnaev had potential in the ring, said longtime trainer Jesse Ravelo, a retired sergeant first class and owner of JR Boxing Club in Killeen, but it is to something more sinister that he will forever be linked.
