The Square Trap by Irving Shulman

He was underage and not very big or strong—but he had dark Mexican skin and a great resentment to drive him. He was Tomas Cantanios to some but in the ring, for those who paid to see him, he was Tommy Kansas, and he was going to win.

The Square Trap is the story of an underage son of a Mexican immigrant worker who sought to settle his score in the boxing ring. Tomas Cantanios, or just Tomas to his friends, came from a loving family and enjoyed being as much of a kid as any poverty stricken child can in L.A. He was going to win the respect of his family and friends, his peers and his community as "Tommy Kansas," prize fighter, but these dreams were knocked into the world of reality as the starting bell rang and as fists began to fly at him with the fierce intent of survival. Irving Shulman puts you in a ringside seat as Tommy Kansas goes into action.
