An article about boxing in this week's BMJ Careers section has caught my eye. It's by two doctors from the British Board of Boxing Control, looking at what is involved in working as a doctor in the sport.
Being a careers article it is a practical look at what's involved, written by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, and doesn't cover a lot of the debate around the research and ethics, which often appear in other sections of the journal. Links to some of them are below.
But it did raise questions in my mind as to whether doctors should be involved in this sport. There are groups that are calling for a total ban - would the withdrawal of the profession be more likely to lead to that or would it just leave a legal (and growing) sport without the care it needs?
Or indeed are you a doctor that's pro-boxing?
