This "sport" as about as healthy as prostitition
19 July 2019 | by VoyagerMN1986See all my reviews

Boxing isn't just associated or correlated with lower IQ and higher crime commission rates -- we know it is causal to those effects. It results in about 10x more brain damage than football. These kids will have a higher incidence of Parkinson's, earlier onset dementia, stroke, and a host of other TBI (traumatic brain injury) related disease. Even sparring with sparring equipment including head gear results in brain inflammation and any brain inflammation causes brain damage.

Is it really helping kids to give them lifelong loss of cognitive function?

As another reviewer noted this was something widely understood to correlate for a century, but today the science has made the association starkly clear, the mechanism understood and the causality clear as well. With each drop of thee points in IQ by three points the likelihood of committing violent crime goes up.
