Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the 26-year-old suspect shot and killed during the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombing, was the subject of a 2009 photo essay titled, "Will Box for Passport," which focused on his training for the National Golden Gloves competition in Salt Lake City.
The photo essay shows Tsarnaev training and includes quotes regarding his lifestyle, religion, move to the United States from Chechnya and his girlfriend.
"I don't have a single American friend," Tsarnaev said in one caption. "I don't understand them."
Tsarnaev represented New England in the heavyweight category at the National Golden Gloves competiton. The tournament was held at the Salt Palace in May 2009.
According to the slideshow, Tsarnaev fled Chechnya with his family because of the conflict in the early 1990s and lived in Kazakhstan before coming to the United States.
As a Muslim, Tsarnaev said he is "very religious," doesn't drink or smoke and "doesn't usually take his shirt off so girls don't get bad ideas," the slideshow captions said.
