JC. Chavez should be behind bars for what he did to Meldrick Taylor.
That was a beating in every aspect of the word.

The worst part is you know guys who have gone on too long these days are going to end up the same way. Gatti, Holyfield, Toney, just too much. I hope Roy Jones hangs it up ASAP as well.

Its hard to say if he's gotten worse, who can tell?
Leon was born with this disability. Nobody was EVER able to understand him.

James Toney-After the Jirov fight he started sluuring terribly, he's at the point now to where it's a struggle to understand him, but considering all of the garbage that comes out of his piehole who gives a DAMN:(

how come its so common in black fighters? not to say its not in white fighters or latinos but when you see guys like Juan Laporte who was in ALOT of wars, he still talks very clear. the onyl latino i can think of who doesnt talk clear is Wilfredo Gomez, he sounds like Ali. but fighters like chuvalo, fullmer and others still talk clear. Even Basilio, thought not THAT understandable, talks clear, but that can be attributed to the fact that hes old.

i guess this is where this thread goes to hell.

benitez, camacho, ****ey, quarry, laguna. any fighter who takes too many blows to the head is suceptible to this problem. race has nothing to do with it.

Unless if certain genetic components (i.e. the APOE epsilon 4 protein) is more prevalent in black fighters.

Have you ever heard of Bobby Chacon, he's got dementia and he's Mexican, Wilfred Benitez has the mind of a 10 year old and he's a Puerto Rican.
Jerry Quarry was White and couldn't even dress himself before he passed.
Don't even go there race has nothing to do with it...

100% true, you take way more abuse to brain in sparring. If you do countless rounds of sparring like a fighter like Toney, you are more succeptable to developing some form of brain dammage.
