He was the champion. Kind of hard to give up the payday that you worked your whole life for.
Sugar Niko Valuev, assuming it’s genetics and not a brain tumor.
He might’ve stayed with Arum.
That’s true, but it’s way easier to catch with speech problems.
Well, I can name about 20-30 boxers with confirmed or suspected CTE and none of them are southpaws. I think it’s strange.
Do you have any examples of southpaws who got CTE?
Moorer has depression. I don’t think it’s caused by CTE, but I don’t know his history either.
Cooney took a bunch of punches to the face and was a substance abuser like a typical CTE candidate, but would’ve had a southpaw’s brain...
One correction: apparently about half of left handed people have the language centers on the right side of the brain. I have no idea what...
A lot of boxers who get cast as having CTE are the ones with language centers affected (like James Toney) who aren’t otherwise that bad. Then...
Foreman was exhausted in any fight that went rounds back then.
Language centers are usually on the left side of the brain…and southpaws usually don’t get hit on the left side of the head.
Here’s your cookie.
Adonis suffered a major TBI and has apparently recovered from it, but are there any southpaws who developed CTE?
No chance in hell.
He was doing fine until he got beaten up. Spinks was also good.
Bull****. He was more than competitive against Spinks until Spinks got to him.
He was still much better against Spinks. Just a cop out.
You can’t seriously be comparing Norton’s durability to Holyfield’s.
Holyfield tko. All he’d have to do is survive and wait for Foreman to gas. I think he would.
Movement, length, chin, stamina, stays in middle of ring.
Toney couldn’t deal with someone like Byrd. He’d probably look horrible.
He liked the check.
