Texas City native Josh Altum, 19, started as a boxer when he was only 13. But when his boxing gym closed down, he switched to MMA. He hopes to turn pro his year, and he’ll keep the Houston area as home base. “I’m a big believer in loyalty and in building up where you’re from,” he says of the fight training available in Houston. “I have the formula. I have everything here that I need.”
