So, this video came across my twitter feed, this morning:

My first thought was, "damn, that kid is good." Then, I was like "damn, that kid is young." And, with all the recent NFL hubbub about concussions and such, it started me thinking about the story that could be constructed - cop finds troubled kid, gets him into boxing, kid becomes a world champ only to be permanently addled in his 30s. Would such an outcome really be better for the kid than burning out via drugs and gang activity? I want to say yes, but I could be convinced otherwise...

I would hope that boxing would have a lower percentage chance of fucking someone up than habitual drug use. Not every boxer ends up like Ali.

Or creating someone who has a habitual drug problem and the capability of seriously injuring someone.
