Retired boxer Rich Gingras, of Lincoln, hung up his gloves last September, after a successful 13 years in the sport. Now, he and wife Alyssa co-run Fight 2 Fitness Gym in Pawtucket, which will expand soon because of Gingras’ new fight. He’s helping people battle through neurological disorders (Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, Stroke) with boxing in a program call "Rock Steady Boxing." ABC6 Sports Reporter Nick Coit has the story.
