Good thing Lou Dibella and Al Haymon were so concerned for JT's well being that they let him fight again.

Lou too?  I thought he left Jermain years ago because he didn't agree with him continuing to fight.  Shameful.   Jermain  needs medical help.   Wouldn't surprise me if he eventually becomes suicidal.  Lots of NFL players with brain trauma end up killing themselves.

Yes, he has been with Lou since his return.  Apparently the allure of Haymon paydays removed from his memory the fact that he said JT should never fight again.

This looks like Junior Seau all over again, but JT will be locked up so he'll probably kill himself in jail.

Jon, don't be jumping off the Taylor bandwagon.   You stick with Winston through vandalism, rape and theft.  Be consistent.

He was in full support of this comeback.  Far as I'm concerned, he's as culpable as anyone else who encouraged this tragedy waiting to happen.

Just heard JT posted a video on his FB page of him smoking a blunt on the way to turn himself in today.  That's how you ingratiate yourself to the pigs.
