Totally uncalled for...

Boxing is directly linked to gradual and some cases instant brain damage. The hits are obviously intentional hence a boxer A is slowly killing boxer B.

Aye, something like 80% have brain scarring. If only they weren't forced into these bouts by way of a cattle prod.

As I say, we all like to condone some things. Some of us condone the wilful participation in a sporting contest, others condone... blah blah, you know the rest.

Thats a very dangerous mindset

If there was a "hunger games" like contest among 20 men with the winner taking home* a million dollars i am sure you even then you will get NUMEROUS participants. You can get 20 such men from each county in FL to participate in such a "sport".

* a lot of them will start of as homeless

Not the same thing, at all. That's quite a poor analogy. There's one thing entering into a contest where you know that to survive you must win and another to go into a contest knowing that there's a minute chance that you may not come out of it OK.

It's said that around 15% of boxers suffer from a neurodegenerative disease, with only just over 1% having any serious disability. Footballers (usually defenders who head the ball the most) will most likely get abnormalities in five areas of their brain - is football up for a banning too?

and when the reward blowing or being blown by whatever you want for a decade I reckon most would be up for those odds.

And the health of the participants is more regulated in boxing than most other contact sports - it is only the judging and promotion that is completely chivved.

Agreed. Although the blowing thing is a new one, unless you count the dead hermaphrodites.

Football vs boxing- There is obviously no comparison between the number of severe hits

Although i still maintain my opinion on boxing how ever you do bring up an interesting point which should be researched.

Research it, chuckles. No comparison? Well, there is. They both cause brain damage. I know one thing about me watching me little boxing - if an Anglo cheated, I have the moral fibre to not only admit it's wrong but actually mean it too.

Talking about boxing, Pacquiao's defeat should mean the end for a Floyd Manny fight. At least a money spinning fight seems out of the question, both seem geriatric fighters now, and Mayweather is also a cheating qunt.

Pacman looked all business on the weekend - all reports were that he'd been f*cking about, but when the bell rang he was almost prime.

Soliman must have improved quite a bit since he was knocked out by that pretender Mundine.

I'm very glad that Froch shut that cock Groves up. Cracking punch. Might be Bruce Bika next for him. Which'll be a gruelling boreathon. But it'd be a 'unification'. Then hopefully a rematch with Andre Ward, who doesn't seem to be doing much.

Split decision. I imagine there's controversy.
