"Boxing should be banned. Are we still in the dark ages"
no i don't think boxing should be banned.
I think either boxing should be banned or there needs to be some kind of protection - Headgear. We don't realise how dangerous this sport is, yes we all know Paul Ingle's situation is rare one but this is a warning sign of how dangerous this sport is. My boyfriend did boxing for two years although he was never seriously injured he has had his nose broken three times & if it gets broken again he can not get it fixed. This is a minor case but it was enough for him to stop, but do we really have to wait for another boxer to do die till we do something.
"Boxing Should Be Banned in Civilized Countries"
Boxing should not be banned. Thousands of kids enjoy taking part, millions enjoy watching and the participants are taking part through thier own choice. Why should others have the right to stop other peoples enjoyment? I love boxing; its the most exciting sport in the world and nothing else comes close. It's a brilliant sport and we should strive to make it as safe as possible. The only people who want boxing banned are the people who cannot bare to see others enjoying themselves. Live and let be. I cannot believe that in the year 2000 we are telling people what they can and what they cannot do.
There are so many reasons why boxing should not be banned. It is simple - if you ban boxing you must ban show jumping. So many more people die in that sport. Also, it is about time people were allowed to make up their own minds. They know the risks and consent to going into the ring. It's time some people stopped trying to inflict their views on others.Boxing should not be banned, but I feel that public opinion will have the final say in the long run, as it will over fox hunting. I used to really enjoy boxing ten years ago, but I cannot watch a boxing match now. There is a huge difference between other sports and boxing as it is the only sport where the object is to inflict brain damage. Even sports such as motor racing (which is always mentioned by the pro boxing lobby) the object is not to deliberately run your competitors off the road and try to inflict as much physical damage on them as possible. The boxing authorities should think the unthinkable - and consider making the use of headguards mandatory.I don't think Boxing should be banned. It is a sport with world-wide creditability. The boxers are trained fighters who are well aware of the consequences. What should be discussed is the need for a stricter regulatory body. Maybe this would minimise serious bodily harm.On the other hand, there can be several valid reasons why boxing be banned. One main reason is the risky injuries that a boxer can acquire through this sport. There are even times that too many injuries can lead to a boxer’s death.This is one main and very valid reason why boxing should be banned. But in all fairness, boxing these days are more sensitive to players compared to boxing in the past centuries. There can also be several high tech and high standard medical equipments that can be present beside the boxing ring so the players can be automatically be cured if ever he acquires a major injury. But it is really hard to convince other people who believe that boxing should be banned.
