About four british people died skiing last few weeks

ban skiing
The point of boxing is to knock your opponent unconscious.
It's not in skiing.

Just to add I'm not saying ban boxing but I think they should be much more done to protect them.They should be hospitalised compulsory for 24 hours after a fight.
There should also be a number of brain scans performed yearly.
No fighter should box more than three times a year.

FFS  for two bags of sand....

Quote
That was late Saturday night in Doncaster and he died early Monday morning and, yes, he did die chasing some type of championship dream but he was a long, long way short of that dream. He also died for a couple of thousand pounds in pay and ticket commission. In 1995, Wee Jimmy Murray collapsed minutes away from winning the British title, a belt worth a risk, but not your life. Murray was pronounced dead two days later. The dismal roll call of boxing’s dead is not a thing of beauty.

Sorry but thats shite

Dont brain scans come with their own hazards (radiation?)

Would being hospitalised have saved Scott Westgarth?

Three times a year - how will up and coming fighters build a career on that basis - nonsense

Youve good intentions but those suggestions would make little difference

Bigger gloves maybe (whats a pros glove weigh, 8oz?), shorter fights (might just make them more intense though)

These two guys seem to have been well matched so its not down to that.  Maybe the damage has been done in sparring in the build up to the fight, cumulative effect (but then SW had only had about ten fights himself hadnt he)
Sorry but if you think trying to offer medical support to a very dangerous sport is just shite then you have lost the debate.
If Scott had been admitted to hospital for obs post fight there is every chance doctors would have seen something.
Three brain scans a year will not damage your health.
Three fights a year would produce a 30 plus fight career.

Most fighter would fight at the drop of a hat and need to be protected from themselves and the leaches that promote the sport.

Very sad and as much as I have enjoyed boxing over the years, i did take a hiatus because of things like this. You're essentially sponsoring people damaging other people.

This is an extreme case  of course but there's thousands of punch drunk boxers out there. The likes of Hollyfield he can barely talk, it would take a very good Doctor to convince me he hasn't been damaged by boxing. That is far from unusual, and that is at the elite level. Below that with far more regular fights, people taking regular beatings I'd imagine its more common.

It is easily arranged to admit twenty people.
The cost is passed to the promoter,its in their interest to look after the fighter.Most would only ever need attention from a nurse but being in the right place is what would save lives.

As I have said these journey men need to be protected from themselves.Stopping them fighting so often might cost them a few quid but would certainly improve there health long term.

Most fighters can't survive on 3 fights a month most struggle with one a month let a lone every two three or four . Only the to ones can get through ok after paying sparing partners dietician sand God knows what else through their 8 to 12 week training camp.
RIP Scott

Brain scans are already compulsory ,
MRI/MRA brain scans are now compulsory for all boxers upon application for a boxers licence and annual MRI scans for all boxers licensed in Britain upon renewal of licence.

Underground boxing would thrive. Much more dangerous for the fighters.

Maybe reduce the rounds to ten, three weigh ins in the last 10 days  for controlled  weight loss, last one two days before a fight, give them time to rehydrate without putting too much weight back on over the limit.

Twelve Rounds has to stay. That has little effect as not just any Fighter is sanctioned to go at a Twelve Round Fight.



Weigh-In's are the issue. No matter what system is used they'll always be positives & negatives.

That's taking my quote out of context. Only Fighters of a certain level make it to Twelve Round Fights.
