Yeah but it's also genetically and if you have a lot of people in your close family you might be at a higher risk. I mean I only box as a hobby so i don't take nearly the same damage but it makes you think how you end up ocne you ar ein your 60s or even 80s.Hell, a lot of folks get Alzheimer's as they age and their mental faculties suffer greatly and the vast majority of them were never in the ring. I think a lot of that mental slipping comes naturally to many people as they age. I saw it happen to my late father-in-law, mother-in-law, my grandmother and a couple of uncles so far. Some got to the point they didn't recognize me, or like my grandmother, she thought I was her dead son and called me by his name when I visited her. That was a bit more than eerie to be fair.
Cancer or heart issues at least kill you off but dementia makes you a a shell of a person for many years possibly and in the case of boxers impacts your ability to think possibly for more thna half your life if you are on of these unlicky guys like the one you met
