AN interesting and important piece with Phil Lo Greco can be found here and touches on some rather important issues, both in terms of fighter safety and the desperate need for a boxer to make money.

In the article Lo Greco talks about how his utterly forgettable fight against Amir Khan last April was one he took knowing he was nowhere near 100% fit and reveals the reason he wore sunglasses during the pair’s press conference was because a long-term concussion happened to be so serious he was unable to tolerate the bright lights or stop his left eyeball from wandering.

Though symptoms he had been hiding for over a year, Lo Greco figured a fight against Khan, inactive for two years, was a risk worth taking. He saw a victory as his key to further success and further paydays.
