Boxing Matches in Hockey Locker Rooms

CANADA - Young Torontonian hockey players are having pre hockey game boxing matches inside the change rooms... and their coaches are encouraging the practice, despite parental disapproval.

Luckily the scandal has been captured on video cameras, showing 15 year old boys pummeling each out with hockey gloves as makeshift boxing gloves. The fights are even structured and despite a ban on such fighting coaches and players continue the illegal fighting activities (to have a legal fight you need a boxing license).

In the hockey rink people tend to expect a little fighting, but the referees always keep it in check. This is different. This is more brutal, a mix of "Fight Club" and ultimate fighting with teenage boys... and the injuries are blamed on rough hockey matches.

Concerned parents want the change rooms monitored and a complete ban on such fighting. So far however players/coaches participating in such fighting have received only an one game suspension.

Worse, the league isn't sure what to do about the phenomenon. The fights are spreading virally online with carefully orchestrated fight videos.
