It's been a few days since Patrick Day passed away, so I thought I'd ask what you think would be the best way to resolve this issue in Boxing? Patrick is the 4th death this year in Boxing, as a result of injuries sustained in a fight. The 4 deaths this year were Patrick Day (Oct 12), Boris Stanchov (Sep 21), Hugo Alfredo Santillan (Jul 25) and Maxim Dadashev (Jul 19).

The way I see it, there needs to be something done to this sport, in order to make it safer. But I understand the sport will practically lose it's fan base if you take the brutality out of it.

There's nothing to change, the name of the game is to hurt your opponent, or knock them out to win, both fighters know the risks involved, it's just the nature of the beast unfortunately.

I read on average 13 boxers die in the ring every year. I would like to see a tougher stance of concussions like the concussion protocol they have in the NFL. Trainers and Promoters and fighters themselves have to be truthful about what happens in the gym. To many fighters r being hurt or knocked out in the gym and it's not reported, if u r knocked out in the gym you should be given a 28 day rest from boxing just like u would if u were knocked out in a fight. They should introduce punishments for any gym not obeying the rules. Could also look at how fighters cut weight. a lot of them seriously damage their health by cutting so much weight, possibly moving the weigh in closer to the fight might help this. In reality though boxing is the hurt business and without making them box using pillows as gloves it's never going to be 100% safe.

Boxing is just one of them sports that can never be truly safe. It's like the north west 200 motorbike race or the one they have in the isle of Man. The Dunlop family have had about 3 or 4 brothers die in them races but still members of their family race, because they love it. Same with boxing.

I asked for confirmation a few days ago, but Sky Sports are now reporting that Errol Spence Jr has been charged with drink driving.
Stupid idiot.

Yeah its confirmed now he's been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, was just a matter of time. Numerous videos of him drunk in nightclubs and he did turn up to the Garcia vs Porter presser pissed.
Hes a very lucky man to be alive and not be facing a serious charges here, I hope he sees this as a chance to sort his problems out.

In the old days they would have lost their boxing licence for that, now they just get a slap on the wrist, even the drug cheats get the same.

We all knew the risks when we went between the ropes, but it doesn't make it any sadder, it's a sport we all love, but a highly dangerous sport, I also feel for Patrick's opponent, he will be absolutely devastated.

Good display by Usyk in his debut. His footwork and boxing abilities are amazing, it's just does he have the power to hurt these big men and keep them from walking him down? i'm not sure, Looking forward to finding out though.

Witherspoon landed a total of 21 punches on usyk on Saturday night (16 jabs and 5 power shots), Usyk's face didn't look like he had just eased to a one sided victory (which he had) it looked like he had been in a war. He has abit of a conundrum because he's going to have to put on weight to be more physical and absorb the punches better but he doesn't want to loose his speed because that's one of his greatest weapons, he will never have the power to hurt these big men but he has to be big enough to not get bullied.

Agree0 Disagree0

Have only watched the highlights but Usyk just looked like he was in a sparring session. Never got going and just did his basics. I would imagine that was down to probably not knowing who Chazz Weatherspoon is - much like the rest of us.

What yous think of the usyk weigh inn? He looked very small in size to me, going to take him awhile adjusting to the size difference. He doing it right though gradually getting bigger by eating the right foods and slowly gaining muscle, expect him to be bigger in 6 months time. Interesting to see how he gets on 2nite.

Fury wrestling on 31st October, god give me strength, one accidental dunt to that eye and it's bye bye to the Wilder fight, I know wrestling is all stage managed but accidents can happen with guys that size.

I have my doubts Fury will face Wilder in Feb imo it will be pushed back.

Agree Roro, I can see it being a big summer fight, with a chance of being at Old Trafford or Wembley, no matter what the American paymasters are saying.
