horsesh#t

the guys with long careers at the top of the game are badly depleted. their health will suffer inherently. no good comes from taking repeated blows to the head and vital organs during training, amateurs, and the pros. no good whatsoever. it's exceedingly rare to find a top flight fighter who is 10-20 years removed from the game whose speech does not suffer.

and there's additional damage that gets done. antonio margarito's eye is permanantly damaged. harry greb went blind in one eye. lamon brewster is completely blind from the helenius fight. guys have problems with their kidneys and liver from making weight (and taking punches.) they get horrible arthritis of the hands and legs prematurely, from the training and impact.


hopkins, mosley, whitaker, toney, hearns, holyfield, bowe, jones, all sound terrible.

foreman, cooney, tyson, leonard, are a few who sound like they were able to retire with their faculties in check.
if anybody would like to add more names to either list, please feel free.



that these guys give up so much of their lives for our entertainment is the great-making quality of this sport and these athletes. you don't play boxing. you live it, and it stays with you after you retire.
