Photo of the Day

In this June 1, 2012 photo, Miguel Uzcategui,13, embraces his pet monkey named, "Fabiola," as he looks out from his home in the San Agustin slum in Caracas, Venezuela. Every weekend, boys line up with their gloves to slug it out in a boxing ring that moves around Caracas from parks to plazas to streets in the slums. They're participating in a program supported by the Venezuelan government that aims not only to develop standout fighters but also to expand the sport's reach and give poor teenagers an outlet to stay away from crime, alcohol and drugs. Uzcategui says the sport has given him goals as well as improved self-confidence. (AP Photo/Ariana Cubillos)
