There is no formula for pugilistic dementia or guys like George Chuvalo would have it and guys like Wilfred Benitez wouldn't.
Glad you posted this. I saw an interview of him on an Angelo Dundee documentary and he was the wisest and wittiest out of all the people there. He must have been in his late 60s or early 70s. My granfather got dementia in his mid to upper 70s and never boxed. It happens to old people.
