Tamerlan Tsarnaev -- Boston bombing suspect #1 who was killed overnight -- was training intensely as a boxer, and hoped to represent Team USA in the Olympics.

According to a site posting photos of Tsarnaev training at Wai Kru Mixed Martial Arts Center in Boston -- he wanted to be selected for the US Olympic team and become a naturalized citizen.

Tamerlan told the site he'd prefer to box for his native Chechnya, but since it's not an independent country ... he'd choose to box for the US.

Tamerlan describes himself as a Muslim who doesn't drink or smoke.

On the photo site ... Tamerlan says he has a girlfriend who's half Italian, half Portuguese ... and has converted to Islam.

I understand that America is the ”Land of the free“ and I know people want to come here and make a better life for themselves but in this day and age we need to put a freeze on people coming to live in America! This country is starting to look like the “Land of the free to come here and kilss us in mass numbers“! Think about America as a huge mansion.... Now do these people that own huge mansion just let anyone come onto their property and just walk right in???? No they have security gates, cameras and other security in place!!! Yes we are a very strong country but we look very vulnerable and we need to put an end to this melting pot in America and take our damn country back!!!!

For those that don't like my comments we have paid back the Native Americans a thousand times over and it's us Americans that go to their casinos so I'm sure they are not crying over **** that happened a long ass time ago!
