I'm with 999, You can't call it cruelty when they do it to themselves.

I'm long past that phase myself. But if you understand a young man's natural instinct to test and display his own courage and prowess against others, boxing is quite understandable.

It is interesting to watch, and in many ways, no more "cruel" than any other art that requires a high level of self sacrifice, such as ballet.

I blame the refs more than any other. Many of the fights should have been stopped but they let them continue. Maybe today they have fixed that but I have watch so little of it that I don't know. The great era of boxing was truly a sport ... I lost interest when it became pay per view and the refs not doing their job and boxers being killed ... I did see Manny fight on TV. Only interested because I think he is probably the best fighter lb per lb in the last 100 years or so. My opinion. I don't follow it at all anymore except when I see the results of his fights.

No longer care much about it

The refs are hired and paid by the promoters and managers. They have always been chastised for stopping fights "too soon." It is understandable for a boxer to think he has a chance and to want to take a chance on his health even when injury is likely. I think Ali is the best example of that.

Look at the first Rocky film, a simulation to be sure but, I believe very telling. I don't think there is much doubt that even the most careless real world ref would have stopped that fight in favor of the champ way before it went the distance. Yet in the audience, we were certainly not cheering for Rocky to listen to his manager and throw in the towel. I remember even then thinking. "If this was a real fight that guy would be damaged." Of course once Sylvester Stallone became famous one realized that it would be difficult to tell whether the fight had caused damage of if that was just Sly. But I digress.

With due respect, Old dude, I beg to differ. I never blamed the refs. I blamed the fans, the sport and plain old human nature.

So it's OK for two people to beat the shit out of one another for your enjoyment is it?
How many boxers come from a well off background? They nearly all come from a poor background, where they have no hope of making their way in life by any other means.
For those who aspire to a Socialist way of life, surely boxing should be top of their list, to be abolioshed.
After all if you eradicate poverty, then there will be no need for men to suffer possible brain damage, in order to feed their families.

They can clean toilets or drive a truck to feed their families. They box for praise and adulation and in our society for the possibility of becoming wealthy.

I don't at all aspire to a socialist way of life. But in their time some of the best boxers came from the Warsaw Pact and Cuba. They didn't have to box to feed their families.

John... I agree.

But, I feel compelled to comment on Dan's "I blame the refs more than any other." Yup. The reffing in boxing has been apalling for years. Absolutely disgusting. Far from the actual rules... even the commands that have been used for decades have been altered. The unwritten rules can be enforced or not enforced depending on who is "supposed to win".

Now... let's take this one step further... WTF is this Ultimate Fighter shit? They put two guys in a cage and there is no ref? They can do ANYTHING they want except bite or whatever. When are we gonna see biting allowed? It's not "just" boxing anymore with some kinda rules. It's UNreal. I say it's time to ban the whole works.

Yeah... I know... ya shouldn't tell other people what to do. But, if we are to move beyond violence as a world, this is a good place to start to teach (y)our children the difference.

I don't go to boxing matches nor do I watch them on TV. Too many people get hurt badly. That is the nature of fighting. As Gnu said, when a guy is hit hard and disoriented, stop the damned fight. Michael Watson: coma for over six weeks, six brain surgeries and permanent partial paralysis. Davey Moore: dead a few days after the bout in 1963. Benny Paret: eighteen hits in six seconds, died as a result of his injuries in 1962. There are more. I don't know what that kinda shit is, but it ain't sport, imo.

One of the daftest rules in boxing is that - when the action is taking place - only the ref can stop the fight; of course, in reality, if a corner man throws in the towel, a ref would be stupid to ignore it.

I can quite understand why some people find it revolting John. I feel that way when fights are allowed to continue for too long. On the other hand, men will always want to test themselves and it is something you can not legislate out of the human condition. Moral outrage has always been a poor advisor to legislation. It would lead to the same catastrophic consequences as it did in the cases of prohibition, the "war on drugs", outlawing of gambling and the outlawing of prostitution.
I once asked a German what he thought would happen if prostitution were outlawed in Germany. "Would there be one fewer prostitutes?" "No", he replied instantly, "but thousands more pimps!".
Like it or not, boxing is part of the human condition. If you outlaw it, it will go into back rooms and outside any legal control at all. In many ways it is a corrupt and ugly business, but making it illegal would not reduce the damage one bit.

To me boxing is a sport of the past. Yes it was brutal but it was also very popular. The saddest part is that many past greats ended their days impovershed and damaged after lining the pockets of promotors, managers, and fair weather friends. Some like Marciano knew when to walk away, but he was the exception; not the rule. That is why I rate him higher than Ali or Louis but of course it is all very subjective.

Big deal... We all boxed... Yeah, okay, it had it's drawbacks: busted hands, black eyes, busted lips... Big deal... Who cares???

Went down to DC when I was 15 or 16 and end me and my buddies all entered the Golden Gloves tournament... $5 and a forged parent's signature... Lotta fun... I made it to the 3rd round... My buddy, Llyod Shelton, made it to the finals before losing... Art Buckner??? He could flat out box... He took his weight class... We had a ball... It weren't no different than playing football...

So boxing itself has a bad rap...

Professional boxing??? Purdy dangerous and much different then just going down to DC and have a couple fist fights...

Not an expression of opinion on the subject of the thread as such, as to which I find self in that increasingly frequent can·see·both·sides·buggerit frame of mind. Simply disagreement as to the 'well-saidness' of the inimitably opinionated Chongo's contribyoosh.

Used to box ABA myself. Really enjoyed it and so did all the other lads.

Obviously, strict regulation around safety and the point of boxing (not punching the shit out of the other lad but landing contact through his guard and earning points) always need reinforcing same as in any sport and the pressure in the professional game can ruin it just like football and cricket suffers.

McColl's radio ballad "The fighting game" takes me back in a very nostalgic way.

Steamin' Willie, I've lost as many as I've won. I wasn't the best fighter y'ever met. But I do know what you mean.

The 'art' of fighting is beyond many people. (If the knocks I took are any indication, they were beyond me too!) That said, and although I was never a boxer, I loved the intensity of a match, the need to do what I had to do, and the afterthought of why I won or lost.

I do not engage in 'combat' anymore when it isn't needed, but I do engage in the afterthoughts. What you wrote makes sense to me, but it likely won't to many.

What's that you guys say? Keep yer chin tucked in. That, and the rest of yer body.

Good one.

BUT, boxing was never meant to be a fight to the death, and when it is, imo, the refs have screwed up. I like the Olympic rules: first blood = end of fight. Half the time it would have saved my life, the other half someone else's. Works for me.

Kendall... "They should wear headgear."

I did VERY well as a lad in headgear. NEVER defeated. Took the headgear off. Got the shit beat out of me. I have EXTREME peripheral vision because my eyeballs protrude slightly from my eye sockets. I can see stuff WAY further to my sides than most people but I can't see shit when someone smacks me in the eyes. Me old man said to keep my head down but I said... "My eyes hurt! Fuck that!" Thus ended my career in the ring.

It never was a "career", of course. It was just a sport I should have never been involved in.

John MacKenzie, the start of this thread is not at all expressed respectfully, especially as an answer to another thread. Demanding respect from boxing supporters after calling them hypocritical cave men makes you look pretty hypocritical. It is also very disrespectful of the memory of the eulogized boxer, Joe Frazier.
