NY congressman Peter King to step into boxing ring
WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressman Peter King of New York is lacing up his boxing gloves for a fight that has nothing to do with budget cuts.
The 68-year-old Republican is known more for his bare-knuckle politics than his pugilistic skills. He plans to step into the ring Saturday for a two-round exhibition bout against a New York state light heavyweight kickboxing champion, "Irish" John Foley, at a pub in Wantagh, N.Y.
King says he weighs in at about 230 pounds and has been training for about nine years.
