The immediate impact may be minimal, as the boxer may simply recover. However, on some occasions, the impact may be very bad with risks Subdural hematoma.

Bleeding from torn veins causes a buildup of blood that presses on the brain. This causes confusion, loss of consciousness, neurological defects and, in some cases, death.

In elderly people, the brain tends to lose volume. This lengthens the connecting blood vessels and makes them more susceptible to rupture. Alcoholism is known to accelerate brain shrinkage, and Tyson apparently considered this a risk factor in the past.

Middle age indicates an increased likelihood of cardiac events such as arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), angina (reduced blood flow to the heart muscle), and myocardial infarction (heart attack).

Extreme exercise can cause cardiac fibrosis (scarring of the heart muscle), which over time can lead to heart failure or, sometimes, sudden death.

Coronary atherosclerosis (narrowing of the heart arteries) often occurs in middle age, even in people who appear healthy. However, this can cause sudden death while exercising. Although regular exercise reduces this risk, a cocaine habit increases this risk significantly, and Tyson is known to have used the drug in the past.
