Default Israeli doctor claims elder Klitschko has Parkinson's disease symptoms

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Israeli neurosurgeon Jonathan Degen from Herzliya Medical Center claims WBC heavyweight champion Vitaly Klitschko is showing early symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
The doctor made his conclusion having watched the boxer in action. An expert in cognitive psychology and neuroscience, Degen advised the elder Klitschko to quit boxing immediately.
“Vitaly is a great champion, but he must take care of himself. I watch all his fights. And of course, I watched his clash against Tomasz Adamek on September 10. It was a total victory, but some dangerous symptoms in Vitaly’s behavior alerted me and I want to warn him. I think that 40 years is that age for Vitaly when it’s dangerous to continue boxing,” Degen told from-ua.com.
Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. It results from the death of dopamine-generating cells in the substantia nigra, a region of the midbrain. It has become almost a professional disease for boxers who receive a lot of hard punches to head during their career. Mohammed Ali is the most vivid example. The disease is currently incurable.
“I drew attention to Klitschko’s movement in the ring during the fight against Adamek as an expert,” the doctor added. “Note that he possessed full advantage, but was unable to deliver any knockout punch to a helpless opponent. It was hard for him to coordinate his body. Adamek received pokes instead of punches.”
“It’s impossible to beat all the contenders. He has already become a legend, now it’s time to take care of his health,” Degen concluded.

So because he is unable to deliver a knockout punch he has PD?

This doctor is just looking for attention and this is a truly terrible way to go about it you don't wish that on anybody.

I love how people online know more about neuroscience than a neuroscientist.

I'm the King and Queen of France by the way. Durrrr.

Vitali`s movement was always awkward, I don`t think it`s cause of parkinson. But I`m no neurosurgeon hopefully it isn`t true

Uh oh...I don't want to be all ad hominem in this argument, but, this is quite disconcerting:

You can trust them if you're into Welfare, Meth, or kiddie porn.

The doc probably knows he has Parkinson's, because he's the one who stuck him wit the needle.
