NPR's Tom Goldman reports on a program dedicated to helping boxers find careers outside the ring. FIST, the Fighters' Institute for Support and Training, is the brainchild of former heavy weight contender Gerry Cooney. The system identifies fighters who are looking to get out of boxing and helps them get into training and job placement programs.
