Default Re: Does anyone worry about the long term effects of boxing

That was just an explanation of what concussion is that I posted since you don't seem to understand much on this issue.
I also said have a look at the research, there is plenty out there showing how dangerous sports like football are. The reason why they are more dangerous than boxing is because players get concussed, continue playing then play again next weekend, possibly getting concussed again. In boxing if you get concussed the ref will often call off the fight and then you have long periods before you fight again.
Your statement "The better you are the more likely you are to get concussed" is also a very odd statement.
If you think boxing is unreasonably dangerous then don't participate, simple.
