Boxers' brains are different
A study by a team of doctors in Bangkok has shown that child boxers' brains are different to their peers: They have highly-developed spatial awareness, co-ordination and motor response areas, but reduced memory capacity and a lower IQ. They also have deposits of iron caused by bleeding inside the brain. The damage in some child boxers' brains is similar to children who've had car accidents or falls from heights.
