from what i've heard benitez has been blind for some time now. he was considered all but washed up as a fighter by the time he was 25. you've got to be doing serious damage to your body if you're badly depleted at 25.
Hearns, Leonard and Duran are not going to be good for anyone's health. Adding to what I said I don't think becoming a pro at such a young age did him a world of good either, his body was taking damage in the stages of his development.
