Ultimate boxing is a bad idea, regardless of history, and should be banned. The sport can be summed up in two words: "Plan Stupid".  In the case of actress Sharon Stone, she suffered severe brain damage due to a bleed that was probably caused by sudden extreme exercise, resulting in her partial paralysis for almost a year and temporary loss of speech.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
I completely agree with Caregiver. If a person has had a head injury at any times during his lifetime, a second impact to the head can be fatal. Hence boxing is out. Please keep your son away from it.
Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!
