Most Old World Boxers (pre 1930) would be at a disadvantage in a modern boxing ring
Format = Informal (new to this)
First round = Acceptance and your argument to the contrary.
Second round = Rebuttals
Third round = More Rebuttals
I accept your challenge, because I do not see how "Old Boxers" would be at a disadvantage.
I will state rules that have changed from the 1930's to now.
1. 15 rounds of boxing was changed to 12 in championship boxing.
This happened becaue 15 rounds became a health hazard, so an "Old Boxer" fighting now would have a lesser chance of becoming seriously injured.
2. The weight of boxing gloves was raised 2 ounces.
This happened because after a long match, the gloves began to break. This would ultimately result in a bare-knuckle fight, which is more dangerous than with gloves. So now, the gloves are more resistible to breaking, making it slightly safer.
I conclude my beginning arugment. I am eager to see your arguments as well.
You are right in saying an olden day boxer, over a shorterdistance, would be at less risk of serious injury. However against a modern fighter, over 12rounds, he would be equally advantaged/disadvantaged as his opponent. So that
Both fighters wearing the same sized gloves would give neither fighter an advantage/disadvanage.
2) The officiating/rules of the modern game favours the modern fighter therefore the 1930’s fighter would likely be disqualified.
To be honest, I did not realize that these two arguments you have placed were in play. If I had known we were discussing these things too, I would not have accepted, because I agree with you. :D I misinterpreted your argument.
Thanks for your time anyways lol.
