However they are not good ones. Should he be allowed to make the life-altering decision to enter the ring and put his life on the line? What few know is that Noki is actually a savant who can imitate and transform himself into any legendary boxer he wants — a plot twist that allows him to pay homage to some of the greatest boxers of all time. Farrago draws upon his experiences as an All-American collegiate boxer, a sports medicine trainer for professional boxers and his decades-long career in medicine during which he worked with autism patients to lend authenticity to his characters and narrative. He's the inventor of the Knee Saver, currently in the Baseball Hall of Fame, worn by major league baseball catchers and is the inventor of the CryoHelmet, used by athletes for head injuries and by those suffering from migraines VoiceAmerica | Talk Radio | Online Talk Radio studio@voiceamerica.com false DD/MM/YYYY Add to Calendar
