Default Fragile Hands And Painkillers - What Fighters...

Have had numbing agents injected into their hands before fights?

Monzon and recently Mayweather have done it.

I think Ali did it early on in his comeback when his hands became semi-fragile after years off from fighting.

Who else?

Dundee would put sponges under the wraps with the approval of the commision for Ali.

Pacheco injected novocaine into Ali's hands on occasion,the problem was exacerbated by his workouts on a special heavy bag.

Lloyd Honeyghan had big hand problems and often need painkillers going into big fights.
