Boxing is a combat sport where competitors score a win by inflicting pain and injury on each other

If you are outside of a boxing ring and you punch someone in the face and knock him unconscious, you risk going to jail. But if you did the same inside a boxing ring, you will be declared the winner of the bout. An English judge has said that boxing “stands outside the ordinary law of violence because society chooses to tolerate it”. Boxing is a combat sport where opponents score a win through inflicting pain and injury on one another.

Why boxing and cage fighting should be banned- but won’t be

“…boxing and cage fighting share a unique characteristic: participants set out to “stop” their opponent, a euphemism for the infliction of harm that renders opponents unable to continue fighting. Knocking them unconscious is the ultimate “stop”.”

Another black eye for boxing: Emanuel Williams was not ready for his debut

Top Rank Boxing came under intense criticism for permitting a lightly skilled, junior boxer to be in an under card bout this past November 2018. This is a classic example of the failure of the boxing world to look out for the health of a fighter and to stop the use of humans as punching bags for other boxers. It also raises concern about the licensing approval process for professional boxers.

When asked how an aggressive sport such as boxing can have anything to do with Christianity, the priest’s eyes lit up and he delivered an inspired sermon on the positive benefits of boxing.

“Like many who know little about boxing, you don’t understand the essence of the sport; you think that it’s about getting in a scuffle and is therefore unchristian. But this isn’t true. If you go into the ring full of emotions, anger, aggression, and human passions, you’re going to lose,” says Akimov.
