Review of A New Kind of Boxing

This story is fun and informative. The producer's use of sound and the voices of experts as well as real people provide a balanced view of the world of boxing. He gives the listener a look into a world that to most is foreign and unfamiliar. It also identifies how the business of boxing is working to stay current and relevant at a time when fitness is defined by less agressive practices such as yoga and Pilates. As the new movie "Rocky Balboa" is currently in theaters this could be a very timely story that Public Radio audiences will appreciate.
