CSAC Debuts New Device To Detect Head Trauma

Every year from three to a dozen or more pro boxers worldwide die from injuries sustained in the boxing ring.

What’s in a Name? Maybe Plenty, If You’re a Boxer

When he authored “Romeo and Juliet” (probably in either 1594 or 1595), William Shakespeare likely did not consider the ramifications of one of the play’s most oft-quoted lines as it might pertain to some distant generation of professional boxers, particularly those from the Republic of Congo, Thailand or Poland. “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” Shakespeare had Juliet proclaim, but perhaps her affection for Romeo would not be so deep if her beloved were a fighter from Bangkok,...

Rocky Sequel "Creed" Drops This Fall; Check Out the Trailer

A new one drops, and this time, the focus is on the son of Apollo Creed; his dad died in the ring, and the ring is a place of existential ambivalence for him. Looks like this re-boot is aimed at maybe a different segment of the movie-going public. It's directed by the man who made "Fruitvale Station," Ryan Coogler, and the trailer, seen below, ain't done by Bill Conti. {youtube}Uv554B7YHk4{/youtube} Smart...
