Boxing hurts your head

Not surpisingly, yet another boxer is in a coma with brain damage. Flyweight Victor Burgos of Mexico remains in a medically induced coma after undergoing surgery earlier this week to remove a blood clot in his brain to reduce swelling after he was injured in a world title fight Saturday night. Burgos, a former junior flyweight titlist, suffered the injury during a 12th-round knockout loss to flyweight beltholder Vic Darchinyan.

As only a small percentage of boxers actually get rich and famous, taking anal from Tommy 'the Aids' Morrisson gives you a better chance of being a healthy millionaire when all is said and done. Having a lot of green is great, but when you can't go anywhere to spend it because you’re too busy pissing yourself uncontrollably, what good is it? Not everyone can be as lucky as Ali though. Even after decades of getting his head smashed in he still “floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee”. Only instead of quick footwork and a deft touch he flaps his arms uncontrollably and is confined to a wheel chair. Yeah, he’s still the champ. And by champ I mean chump. And by chump I mean he probably still gets more snatch than I do.
