Rob B., M.D. -

Fight doctor: Despite being someone who likes watching a good boxing match, I can not understand why organized medicine has not strongly condemned human combat such as boxing and the MMA featured in this piece. When I was a child I watched a "Twilight Zone" episode with Lee Marvin in which he was the manager of a robot boxer as human boxing had been outlawed in the future which was 1984!! This episode aired in 1963 so I was at least 6, probably older (lets say 8) and saw it in rerun. My reaction at the time was a shrug and an assumption that society would outlaw this barbaric sport in the not so distant future. As an 8 year old I recognized the immorality of boxing, and yet medical societies, particularly neurology and neurosurgery (and Emergency Medicine) remain silent today.
The argument certainly can be made that it is better to have a doctor at the arena since the fighting will happen anyway and I do not advocate a boycott of the sport by physicians.

It is clearly the responsibility of organized medicine to call for the abolishment of human vs. human combat for sport.
Oh, and by the way, if you have never seen the movie Fight Club, I highly recommend it.
