Should kids box?
A new warning, perhaps an obvious one, from pediatricians: boxing can damage kid's brains. The statement comes from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Canadian Paediatric Society.

But people in the boxing industry say the issue of youth and boxing is a little more nuanced than a simple outright ban.
