This isn't an article about boxing and what happens when you get knocked out, but concerns a hereditary or acquired condition known as color vision deficiency.
Color vision deficiency is the inability to differentiate between certain colors or, in more severe cases, to be able to see colors at all, also known as “color blindness.” Most individuals with color deficiency can see colors, but have difficulty identifying differences between shades of red and green or, less commonly, blue and yellow, and the deficiency varies from mild to severe.
