Will Boxing Be Safer In Rio Olympics

The safety headgear for boxer was removed in 2013 putting an end to the 31-year-old practice. According to AIBA, the tournaments have passed without any concussions. Julian Bailes, who played the neurosurgeon in the Alec Baldwin Concussion, says that concussions are 50% less since the headgear was removed. During the previous two world championships, very few fights have been stopped. The figure was less than 5% in the year 2015. Also, remember the 2015 championship had stricter qualifications reducing the chance of mismatches. Moreover, the question of concussion came up only in July 2015 after the simulators projected by Andrew McIntosh and Declan Patton.
