    I always just assumed he did. Even in the Hatton-Mayweather 24/7 specials, you could just tell dude was having trouble just putting sentences together and getting words out.

    Hope for all the best for them, I may not love the Mayweathers but I wouldn't wish brain damage on anyone.

    That's a shame. Jeff is the coolest one. Has great interviews on their YouTube channel. He's hilarious.

    People give Floyd shit for his style but he was smart, he took relatively minimal head trauma in his pro career due to his defensive style. Most boxers after 50 fights are slurring their words and broken down.

    At least his style protected him a bit more than sluggers. If he went and there and threw every fight, he'd probably be a lot worse off, though we don't know how bad Floyd's brain is. He's a boxer, so he ain't getting away scott free.

    Silly people. Roger doesn't have brain damage. The ref stopped the fight too early and he's only wandering around because he ran out of gas and is trying to find some.

    I've met Roger and he needed to be helped to the ring (he was just making a short speech)

    A life time of sparring and fighting is a LOT of head trauma no matter how great you are.

    Stay away from competing in striking, folks.

    Mayweather knows brain damage when he sees it. When he says Conor has brain damage, you'd be a fool to deny it.

    Yea but senior is still communicative and works as a trainer. Roger was also a trainer and a good one at that and now he is getting lost, that is just sad!

    Come on now. Roger is very known himself and a former champ. Not to mention the fall out between Floyds, Roger was Juniors head coach in that period.

    roger can no longer function as a trainer. to get exercise he still holds pads a little, but he cant hold them for anyone going all out. furthermore his vision is going quickly. he will probably be totally blind in the next year. senior has a hard time communicating but still actually has a sharp mind. his words just fail him. he is completely aware of it to and knows that he has some brain trauma
