Was their any mention of this guy having slurred speech in between rounds?
I kinda meant coughing up blood in a fight and it not be stopped. And I have sucked one drop of water or coke down 'the wrong pipe' before and almost choked to death with a coughing fit. And Steve Erkel could whoop my ass during one of these. I wonder if the body would trigger this type of coughing if blood were to go down the wrong pipe?
And I understand what you meant by uncontested shots to the head. But I have seen a few times that I wondered how the guy ever lived and their was apparently no (reported) damage.
I agree that cornmen have obligations of safety but I also believe that the signs are not as readily seen as most people believe until it is too late.
