New Study on Boxing Injuries
New Study on Boxing Injuries

AIR DATE: August 3, 2011

A punch from a pro boxer can be equivalent to a bowling ball thrown 20 mph.  So what does that do to boxers?  Are there long-term injuries?  The Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center is doing a brand new study on how all this fighting affects boxers' brains, and how they can improve safety equipment.  We talk to the lead investigator and some boxers about this study.
