The Port City Pounders are ready to rumble

We often get phone calls at The Times from parents and coaches looking for a little pub for their event and kids. I got a phone call earlier this week from Fox Rich, a mother whose children are active with the Port City Pounders boxing club.

The tiny gym is behind an auto body shop. Coaches open the garage door entrance, and it's still muggy in there. I went over to do a video story about the kids on Thursday. They've got a big boxing meet coming up for Saturday.

These kids are really cool, but to really appreciate their boxing skills check out the video.

You've got to hang around until the end to hear Matt Walpool, an 8-year-old, who already sounds like Muhammad Ali.
