The Queensland Government, located in Australia is seriously considering regulating combat sports in their state due to the death of two individual boxers in the past five years. Dozens of other boxers have been badly injured, causing for concussions that alter their personality and more. This is becoming a norm in the region, this is a norm no one desires to see and due to this the government has been in serious talks during council meetings on how they could regulate this violent sport.
Last March, Braydon Smith was in a featherweight fight at the local boxing ring. He was fighting against John Moralde, this Filipino man brutally assaulted Braydon during the fight as Braydon was no match for him. An hour and a half after the fight was finished, Braydon collapsed to the floor and died two minutes later. The parents tried to sue the boxing association of Australia, they tried to press charges against Mr. Moralde and they did everything in their power to ensure their sons death not be in vain. Unfortunately, all efforts until not were worthless & it’s only due to the possibly penalties that the Queensland state would have to pay that their considering regulating the sport.
Hopefully these two deaths don’t go in vain & that there is justice for the dozens of dozens of boxers whom have been altered in their personality through concussions. The sport could become once again fun, enjoyable and exciting if the idea of possibly being injured for life or worse wasn’t a factor for the boxers.
