Fighting For 14 Year-Olds?

from Mke Brudenell of the Detroit Free Press,

Coach Pat Peake turned to the ring to help his junior hockey team become more confident on the rink.

Peake brought in a former Kronk Golden Gloves champion, Charlie Peters, to teach boxing to his team of 14-year-olds. Although fighting is heavily policed in junior hockey and can lead to suspension, boxing helps teach self-defense and hand-eye coordination.

Peake invited Peters, who trained with and fought alongside Tommy Hearns as an amateur, to Viking Arena in Hazel Park, where the team is located.
