Jerome Wilson returns to BaylorIC TV to discuss with Ingram Jones about life after having to retire after sustaining a serious injury to the brain back in Sept 014.
Jerome “Wipeout” Wilson talks about his Professional Boxing Career, his career ending injury in 2014, events that happened while in a coma and life after boxing. Jerome also talks about his upcoming book “Wiped Out?”
“Wiped Out tells the story of welterweight prospect Jerome ‘Wipeout’ Wilson – and shines a light on boxing’s ultimate taboo. On 12 September 2014, in his 11th professional fight, Jerome was knocked out in the sixth round. He never got up. Wilson was rushed to hospital and spent ten days comatose. He had suffered a subdural haematoma, a large bleed on the brain. When he finally came to, his sense of reality had unravelled. He was unable to speak or move. Eventually he was discharged with a quarter of his skull missing. As soon as he was able, Jerome recorded his innermost thoughts in a unique diary, which traces his gradual reconnection with the world. Published on the first anniversary of his injury, Wiped Out is the most personal reaction to massive brain trauma ever put on paper. Jerome’s future is uncertain, but he knows he is lucky to be alive”
