In March of 2014 a young life was lost inside the kickboxing ring, Rest In Peace Dennis Munson.

One person with past ties to the gym at the center of the story is Pat Barry. We will talk with Pat in detail about the video of the fight and how negligence by the ring side doctor, the ref, all the way down to the corner of the young man could have prevented the tragedy. We will discuss with Pat about how he feels the sport could become more safe and much more. Follow Pat on Twitter @HypeOrDie
