Let's Knock Out Brain Injuries in Boxing!
It’s better to stop one match than your career. All concussions are serious.
In the world of boxing, it's crucial to recognize that the cost of ignoring a potential concussion outweighs the importance of a single match. Every concussion, no matter how seemingly minor, demands serious attention and care. Prioritizing your long-term well-being over immediate success is paramount in ensuring a sustainable and thriving athletic career.

Concussions are like a warning sign from your body - heed them. Ignoring them can lead to consequences far more devastating than the temporary setback they initially present.
Why Report Your Symptoms?
Competing or sparring with concussion symptoms is dangerous. It can lead to a longer recovery and a delay in your return to action. In rare cases, repeated concussions in athletes can result in brain swelling or permanent damage to your brain. They can even be fatal.
