Former champ boxes with the homeless

Former boxer Mia St. John had it all: a loving family, a super welterweight title belt, and the money, fame and celebrity that came with it. But after her son who had been struggling with schizophrenia took his own life, she re-evaluated hers. Mia now spends her days teaching boxing lessons to LA's homeless population, many of whom suffer from the same mental illness that afflicted her son.
