Rick Weinstein, MD, of Westchester Health Orthopedics and Sports Medicine in White Plains, N.Y., will be ringside as a team physician caring for 14 fighters during Klitschko – Jennings at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, April 25.

"Klitschko also known as Dr. Steelhammer is the long-time Heavyweight Champion Of The World and at 6' 6 and almost 250 pounds the amount of force behind one of his punches can create a much higher risk of severe injury than what normally occurs," said Dr. Weinstein. "That's why it's especially important to have qualified physicians for a match like this major heavyweight bout given the damage that can be done."

 

Dr. Weinstein says beyond boxing, football is the most dangerous sport, with cheerleading being the second-most dangerous, especially for flyers.
