Whats your opinion on the sport of boxing? Do you enjoy watching it, or other violent sports?


I enjoy watching it for the sport, but i dont enjoy watching someone get their ass kicked by 3 guys in the street or similar situations. Also when you are at school its best to fight it out than talk shit behind peoples backs or bully people.

I think it's awesome when used responsibly. I just joined a boxing team a couple weeks ago and I love it, but there's no way I would use what I've learned unless I had to.

's allright, but is way cooler when thrown into MMA with the muay thai and everything else allowed
The world doesn't revolve around you. If it does, beware. You're probably about to pass out drunk.

Rather than watching it, boxing would be a useful little self defense thing you could have. But I have my Hitmonchan handy for those situations.

Boxing is so boring. Half of the match is them leaning on each other.

Boxing: old-timey sport that's like MMA but you wear big red gloves and can't use anything but them. But it gives rich people something to bet on

Its interesting how mma is considered a safer sport than boxing also.

The way I see it is you have to be involved in some kind of fighting sport to really appreciate boxing since what a lot of people consider boring is mostly a showcase of perfect technique. That being said I love boxing, and think mma blows hard (I respect the ground game of mma fighters though)

I think alot of it has to do with the match ups(boxing that is).

There are so many boxers now and so few of them are actually legit.

MMA is only 3 rounds, 5 min each. Thats my kind of sport.

Yeah that is true. Some of the undercards for the fight tonight were pretty good though. To all the people who say that boxing is fighting with pillows on your hands. Have you ever taken a good punch from some where wearing a boxing glove? I'm not talking about taking a shot from one of your bitch ass friends in a back yard boxing match where all of you hit like little girls. I mean a good clean shot from someone who knows what they are doing. You will see stars even with some 16 ounce gloves.

Boxing is often boring save for quality main events like the one tonight. Too many organizations, too many belts, too watered down, too much bureaucratic bullshit.

It's best not to ask the public about combat sports. Most people here probably have an extremely minimal knowledge of fighting that doesn't go far beyond the few weak fights they had as kids.

I much prefer MMA and K-1 kickboxing, and Muay Thai. The rules of boxing are too constricting IMO, although it's awesome to see extremely talented boxers go at it.
