Impairment
He suffered head injuries from boxing as well as from a car accident in 2003. Following years of rehabilitation for these injuries, he was assaulted and sustained a broken neck and an incomplete spinal injury called Browns Sequard syndrome. Doctors initially told him this would result in paralysis from the neck down and he would not walk again. (bedfordtoday.co.uk, 03 Jul 2013)
