any problems after he retired? Like mental problems from punishment he took in the ring or anything like that?

yes, he suffered from dementia pugilistica...

unrelated fact that I learned about SRR recently was that he was also a diabetic

I think his biggest problems after his retirement was the fact that he blew most of his money. I thought he only got DP when he was really old but I could be wrong

I saw a documentary about him and I think he was affected with dementia pugilistica.

But he had like 200 fights so that probably explains why.
