In this April 11, 2014 photo, a girl jumps rope in a boxing gym as visitors arrive on a theatrical tour of Mexico City's Tepito neighborhood. Tepito's tough reputation is well-earned. Along with the killings in recent years, residents sometimes fight with rocks and glass bottles against police trying to conduct raids at houses believed to be sheltering drugs and pirated merchandise. The neighborhood has also earned its fierce reputation through its history of producing professional boxers.
