At last someone raised this issue. As an athlete myself, I feel that there must be a code of conduct for every popular sports Then a research should be carried out on different incidents, which caused brain injuries in the last 10 years or so. The details should be gathered for all such incidents. And finally, a common policy for all sports should be devised and published to keep all athletes safe.


Concussion in Sports is a great way to show some skills and abilities as an Athlete. Brain injuries are likely common for sports especially for boxing and football and a lot of players are suffering from this and some are into medication until now. I hope that there's no brain injury will happen in the mayweather vs alvarez fight this year.
