Over a 126 year period nearly 1000 people have died surely this is saying something to people ?
Last year alone 142 people were admitted to hospital with life threatening Injuries.
And imagine how there family's will feel if there son becomes paralysed because he played a stupid little game of boxing.
Boxing should be banned because it teaches people to use their fists instead of their words, and it can cause very serious injuries. Children get easily influenced by what they watch on T.V and if they see two grown men punching each other they'll think that that behaviour in acceptable in regular society. There are so many wars going on in this world, in a war their is guns to harm others, in boxing its fists, we should all try to ban boxing altogether!
It will damage your brain your health and do something not purpose and restricted.It hurts people in the body part especially girl. It realllyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy should be banned completely because of its extreme danger sport.... It will kill a lot of people's livesssss !!!!! There should be no further explanation.... All you should know is that it should be banned
Why do people enjoy such a violent sport? Why do people love to see so much blood? Why do they like to see people they love and know hurt and possibly killed? Well, I think this barbaric sport should be officially banned. People get seriously injured, and even possibly killed in this terrible sport. It may be fun to watch, but it's not fun to play in.
Boxing is a violent game that creates wrong impression on the mind of children,prodigies and society too.
I know that people watch games for their refreshment and entertainment but does this violent game really entertain us ? When a person is hits his opponent. If yes it means they have lack of feelings of kindness,humanity and they are less human but more animal.
I accept that this is also a game but in my opinion this game should be strictly banned.
At last i only want to say that
we had organise this game so we can also banned this game
Boxing is wayyyyyy too dangerous! ( If you don't believe me, google 10 worst boxing injuries and click the one at mightyfighter.Com.) Also, kids, teens and even adults who watch boxing on TV can think that fighting is a good thing. So, instead of solving problems in a humane way, they just punch or kick the guy that is bothering him. This can cause kids to have injuries or even deaths. So, altogether, boxing just is a source of more and more pain. This is why I think boxing should be banned.
Boxing can ruin the lives of the boxers and their families. One blow to the head and the person can be severely injured or even die!! Boxing is nothing but a blood sport! Boxing should be shut down for good because it sends out the wrong message for everyone and there's no point in boxing.
The only reason why men do it is to make a quick buck!!
Boxing is very harmful, and boxers don't turn out to be very bright people (translation: every boxer is a doofus). Some are also killed. Imagine if your family member was killed, and people out there think it should not be banned. Therefore, boxing should be banned. People die for crying out loud!
Boxing is a Killy punch which punches people to be violent not only it kicks the children to wave their hands and legs with thei freinds in form of fight. Bang the sport before the sport bangs you so the choice is yours to ban the sport or continue it.
It results in injuries to the boxer and his family. Also it influences others to be violent
We talk about money. What is the money which you get after sending another to hospital . Aren't there another forms of entertainmen ? There are other not so violent sports to enjoy
For the people here saying boxers are dumb and cant read and right.Ha! Don't make me laugh. Juan Manuel Marquez- Accounting degree,Marco Antonio Barrera- College grad and degree in law,Juan Diaz- College grad and currently enrolled in law school and look at David Beckham - "er, er, at de end of da day its a game of two arves" ??? They are not dumb just because they are boxers, that's ridiculous and yes boxers are judged on how good they can punch but they are also judged on how kind they are of a person too! Muhammad Ali is so renowned as a great person he was such a like able guy not a feeling-less killing machine. You may gethurt or die but at the end of the day it can happen to anyone, you could walk out the house and get hit by a car, life is dangerous these people take risks to do what they love.
Any type of sports risks injuries. If injuries are the reason why boxing is going to be banned, then they should ban other sports with more risks of death and injuries, which includes a lot of popular non-combat sports.
If they say punching each other to see who wins is unnecessary, then how is kicking the ball into the goal necessary in soccer? What's the necessity of throwing ball into the hoop in basket ball? Why use bats and balls in base ball? Because that's the type of sports that they're playing!
It's entertainment! It's a type of game/sports! Even kid's playing a little game of tag or hide-and-seek or anything that involves exercising risks injuries and maybe even death. There's way more things that people should be debating on and trying to ban.
Boxing should not be banned because its a sport that people love and some of the greatest athletes in the world are boxers. Especially for people like me who really love boxing. I mean look at Mohammed Ali one of the greatest boxers of all time, he didn't die from boxing he died from something else.
It is very entertaining and a way of life for some people and you cant take that away from them. Its what they enjoy so just let them do it if they want to. Its a way of living for some people and boxers make plenty money doing it too.
No it shouldn't because it is what they love to do and they know that they could be hurt in the world of boxing. So I need to know why you guys are against them but you will get over it because more people watch boxing than people do watch the super bowl.
Boxing is a sport that causes little harm except to the boxers involved. In a way, they are consenting adults and know what the sport entails: they are possibly going to get beat up. Recently, it has been shown that repeated blows to the head can cause damage to the brain, so I do think people involved in the boxing business should look to rules and protective gear that would reduce that risk. I think they used to have a "no hitting below the belt" rule, so they could have a "no hitting above the shoulders" rule also. That would eliminate the possibility of a "knock out", though, which seems to be one of the most exciting parts of the sport.
Boxing, a sport that pretty much comes with a guarantee of injury, is not really that just different than some other sports which are comparable to the likelihood of injury, for instance, football. Football is a full contact sport in which players are injured frequently and there seems to be no question as to whether football should be banned.
Boxing is a sport, just like football, baseball, basketball, etc. It is violent, but no more violent than football, which encourages people to attack one another. If it were banned it would just go underground, people aren't going to stop participating in and watching a sport that they love to do.
Boxing is used for sport and self defense. Boxing is included in other sports such as cage fighting. Boxing is also great cardio for anyone. The news and television is complaining about the obesity epidemic, so why ban a sport that is great for your heart and weight. Boxing can also be used as a great stress reliever, which could help in depression!
Imagine if you had a brother that was in boxing and won $500,000. Now, that could never happen if we ban boxing. Also, if boxing was banned that would just lead it to a bigger attraction. It's keeping more kids off the street and it's not as violent as you may think.
If we ban boxing, it wouldn’t do anything besides leading it to a bigger attraction for the sport. I would definitely be certain that there might be a riot. Besides, people will still do it in their backyard, so then more innocent people will die. It could also be lead to more street fights.
Many kids are staying off the streets and doing boxing instead. I also know that kids are learning more about boxing than doing drugs. I strongly recommend you that you consider that boxing is not a violent sport. Boxers always use padded gloves and if something bad ever happens they always have some top notch doctors ringside. After all this, if you still think boxing is violent then I also suggest that you consider looking at MMA, UFC, etc et era because in my eyes, those are more violent. In conclusion, boxing shouldn’t be banned because it might lead to a bigger career, keeps most of our kids off the streets and is not a violent sport.
