    I totally get the loss he feels he has suffered with boxing.

    But what was he thinking? Who did he spar? Who was the trainer here?

    It's unreal.i like the fact robert smith has spoken out on this and been very honest.he collapsed again and had to have pressure relieved on his brain again.

    He's probably saved your life Nick.

    "I probably could fight again if I wanted to. I'd have to go for a medical and stuff, but I spoke to Gary and said 'if I was fine to fight again would you train me?' and he said 'no'.

    "I wouldn't have anyone else in my corner, so if Gary wouldn't train me I wouldn't come back."

    I can't imagine what it's like to have your passion and career taken away from you but this was just silly. Lockett continues to prove he's a good guy as well.

    You'd think after what happened to him he'd be scared to death at the thought of taking shots to the head ever again, I know I would be.

    Hope he's alright but this really is foolishness on a grand scale and he should be ashamed for putting his family through this again.

    All involved should feel bad. Clearly it's some kind of addiction and he needs help.
