    Here's a good article summarizing a few of the studies out there. The main couple being dehydration and delayed reaction times, especially note the delayed impaired motor skills which would certainly impact training.

More of what happens when a fighter is out partying 2-3 times a week for a couple months and then lays off for 30 days prior to a fight. Is that 30 day period enough to remove all of the affects or does the alcohol still impact his performance?
    Lew Jenkins, World LW Champ pre-WW2. He was known as the "Sweetwater Swatter". He had a marked alcohol problem and was asserted to actually have a bottle of whiskey/whisky secreted in his spit bucket when he was actually fighting. He had a dynamite punch which helped him to ring success. Ultimately the drinking ruined him yet he attained redemption in the Korean War as a serving Sergeant. He eventually dried out and gave up the drink.

    Yes, a Boxing World Champion undone by alcoholism.

    He's also featured in a book by Peter Heller "In This Corner". I already knew of him long before the book.
