Does that say something about the ‘sport’ of boxing though? I used to watch boxing years ago at the ‘Great International Sporting Club, promoted by Reg King. With maturity you do realise that a sport which involves punching your opponent in head can’t be right.

I tried it once in the gym at school as no-one else would volunteer and I'm always up for having a go. I got a bloody nose so I never did it again. I've done quite a bit of fencing but I usually use a post hole borer for that!

Blows to the head can be a trigger for Parkinson's and I would imagine that a fair number of boxers end up with it if they persist for long enough. Ali, or Cassius, certainly did.
