Video: Correctional officer uses boxing to stay in shape

"Boxing makes you make decisions fast, and I need to make decisions fast in life"


By C1 Staff

ATLANTIC CITY — Correctional officer Kyshawn Wyman considers boxing to be similar to working in law enforcement.

“Boxing makes you make decisions fast, and I need to make decisions fast in life,” he said. He said he needs fast reflexes in his job. “Boxing just keeps up everything I do in life.”

Wyman is one of 6.4 million whose interest in boxing has risen since 2006, according to Press of Atlantic City.

He says it’s a great way to stay in shape, and it’s helping him get fit for the Atlantic County Corrections Academy in September, where he hopes to get certified to carry firearms.
