    There does seem to be more this year than I have ever heard of.
    Think it may be down to social media and the fact we hear more about it now, I was reading on average 13 boxers die in the ring each year

    I am ambivalent on boxing. On a rational level, the thought of two guys (now women too) trying to punch each other unconscious is morally indefensible, in my opinion. On the other hand, their skill and courage is admirable, and I watch some big fights. It's something I know I shouldn't enjoy, but I sometimes do. If boxing was banned, I couldn't offer an ethical objection; it seems almost every medical association in the world wants it stopped. The long term effects of boxing can be devastating. Then there's the promoters and others making big money via young men putting their health and lives at risk.

    Yes youíre probably right, like most things we think are on the increase compared to years ago, itís more likely we just know more now due to social media.
