TITLE Boxing Club in Mountain View is filled with heavy bags.

Those who join TITLE Boxing Club, slated to open 4 p.m. Monday in Mountain View, won’t need a cutman. There’s no sparring – or even a boxing ring – in the gym, located at 157 E. El Camino Real.

TITLE is about boxing workouts – not boxing. Members punch bags rather than one another.

It appears only an angel can resurrect the recently canceled Foothill College Circuit Race.
