Re: Does anyone worry about the long term effects of boxing
It probably be tough to go pro and not have any brain damage, the higher in weight you go and the more bouts probably increases the risk, as well having a skinny neck probably hurts you too. I mean, I don't think its possible to get 1000 punches to the head over the span of your career and not get some kind of mild brain damage. But lots of people never even live long enough to suffer the damage. That being said I think people should worry or be aware of it, because you don't want to end up a vegetable and you want to fight smart.
