Wilfredo Benitez back home

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Puerto Rican ring legend Wilfredo Benitez is back at home after spending several days at the Presbyterian Hospital in Condado, Puerto Rico. It was originally feared that the three-time world champion had suffered a stroke, but a raft of medical tests have ruled that out. Benitez apparently suffers from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a form of dementia pugilistica. Benitez fought as a pro from 1973 to 1990.
