Imo,the best way to handle this would be,tough stringent medicals on all fighters. Not cosmetic once overs. If more stringent checks had been applied,maybe Muhammad would have been stopped from taking those last two terrible fights !
yes. whether too young or too old, if you are within a year or 3 of wearing a diaper, no fights for you. Time to go to bed and get your rest.
