Barry McGuigan wrote an article for the Mirror pleading for Edwin Valero to get out of the ring, and for boxing to stop overlooking the serious brain injury he suffered earlier in life. The same injury is the reason he is only licensed by one state in the US: Texas. "It was not until the New York State scan that the extent of his injuries were revealed. The fact that he had a traumatic brain injury, a tear inside the cranium in the most vulnerable part of the brain, means he should never box again in my view. That is a devastating conclusion to reach for such a talented fighter but not as desperate as the consequences might be of fighting on." With so many in and around boxing so concerned about fighter safety (which they should be), does the Valero situation seem like a strange oversight to you? I myself have mentioned it a few times when talking about Valero, but I'll admit I'm guilty of almost ignoring it myself. What say you?
