    SecondsOut Radio: Dr. Margaret Goodman on Boxing's Watergate 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman

  • On this week's special edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Dr. Margaret Goodman, a neurologist and former chairman of the Medical Advisory Board of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, about the scandal which may become boxing's equivalent of Watergate.

    On July 30, The New York Times ran an investigative report entitled "In Boxing's Underbelly, a Blind Eye to Fighters' Health" by John Eligon and Duff Wilson. The piece documented numerous cases where boxers had been given questionable medical clearance to fight, and even had fraudulent medical forms submitted on their behalf to various state athletic commissions for supposed medical examinations of them. Several of these fighters later died as a result of injuries suffered in those fights.

    We discuss with Dr. Goodman this scandal in depth and the failure of so many state athletic commissions in the US to take proper and reasonable measures to look after the safety and well-being of the fighters, as well as what must be done both in the short-term and the long-term to protect fighters.
