Comment on Knock-out concussion causes irreversible brain damage by R Henry.

It is not the sport that is at fault but the attitude of the coaches and the expectations of the public.
Boxing, like any sport, can be perverted from a thing of speed and grace to plain brutal punishment.
I do not follow boxing and I gave up watching football years back because of the acceptance of personal violence on the field.
This attitude of smashing heads needs to change but not at the cost of removing sports.
Do not confuse boxing with prize fighting and some of the later free for all cage fighting.
