This is a dangerous game

Felipe Orocuta and Zab Judah both suffered concussions and were hospitalised this weekend, Judah is talking and in good spirits, which is a very good sign this early, and that is great news! But Orocuta is still in a coma, he had to have emergency brain surgery, so his scenario is much more severe, let's all hope and pray thar Orocuta also recovers, because this is a matter of life and death, and it is easy to forget how dangerous a sport boxing is.

It proves how improtant it is in a fight, that the doctor is focused and doing his or her job, the referee also, and the referee stops the fight at the right time.

Judah and Stevenson were both the same age, and both suffered brain injuries from stoppages in round 11, Klitschko is that age, I remember thinking the stoppage came slightly too late, if anything, when he took that beating against Joshua. It might be an idea not to let fighters over 40 fight for world titles, and not have 12 round fights, because the accumulation is very dangerous, and older fighters are at higher risk.

Adonis Stevenson and Spencer Oliver both almost died from brain bleeds or clots, and they are both walking and talking again now, Nick Blackwell, Prichard Colon, Michael Watson, Gerald McLellan, alive, but have permanent damage, and Mike Towell, Bradley Stone, Scott Westgarth, Leavander Johnson, didn't make it, they sadly passed away. It looks like Judah will be one of the lucky ones, like Stevenson and Oliver, but as for Orocuta, it is too early to say, we all hope he recovers, but when you have to be put in an induced coma, have to have brain surgery, that is hard to come back from.
