New policy for teen boxing

Posted: Updated:

Even though USA boxing insists headgear is always worn in amateur fights.  The American Academy of Pediatrics has updated its policy on teen boxing. The group has long taken the view that children should not engage in boxing, but now it says parents and coaches should discourage the sport among young people.  The AAP says this is one more step to protect kids and teens because they are particularly vulnerable to brain injuries and concussions.
