  1. I was a half way decent boxer 60 odd years in the Army, but I am no longer a fan! The point of boxing is to inflict brain damage on your opponent, this could severely mentally and physically damage someone, possibly for life!

    • There is a bit more to boxing than what you mentioned.

      No one goes into a boxing ring with the “point” of Inflicting brain damage.

      Anymore than ice-hockey players go onto the rink to hit each other with their sticks…it does happen in both sports but rarely is fatal.

    • Surely the point of boxing is ”the noble art of self defence” – any hooligan can inflict ‘brain damage’ on someone, but body and jaw shots are unlikely to cause such injuries, but can disable an aggressive attacker. If more people knew how to effectively defend themselves without using weapons (I learned to box at school) there would be far fewer violent crimes, as assailants would find far fewer easy victims.

      • Are you a medical doctor? If so I would have thought you would know that a blow to the head can kill! A few years ago Donald Dewer MP, fell on a slippery step, striking his head on the ground, it killed him!
