I remember some ring deaths. When Benny Paret died they took boxing off the air for two years. One thing that would happen if boxing were outlawed today is that guys wanting to make a living at it would go to places like Aruba where restrictions are few and medical oversight isn't.


Been watching Emile Griffith just about as early as I can remember including this this third Paret fight and didn't really know anything about him until seeing this pretty well done documentary.

Watched Oswalt get killed on live TV too. Watching it on TV and in person seems about the same to me. Can't quite watch a fight through that somebody was killed in. Hell I don't even like watching tree arboring fails that someone gets hurt in. But the home smasher ones are still fun.

That documentary is a good one.
