His team brought in a priest and minister to convince him to go through with it.

I can't make up that kind of irony.

Gerald McClellan had a fight with Benn, where he suffered from a blood clot in his brain. He lost his eyesight, ability to walk and became 80% deaf. He is now being cared for by his three sisters.

The other fighters in the pictures that were posted all died after the fight. That's Ezzard Charles killing somebody, Sugar Ray Robinson killing somebody, and I'm not sure about the rest.
Michal Watson never died you ****ing idiot. You are a ****ing first class twat sticking pics like that up just to 'trump' some guys on a message borad.

Just for a little perspective:

More people die in coal mines than in boxing rings. (and the same goes for getting permanent physical damage.) The same is probably true of Pro football (USA) though the correlation is still largely undocumented.

Lots of occupations are brutal.

Very interesting indeed. Did they use the same weight gloves as they do today? or was there no rule for that at the time in the sport?
