Are you someone who enjoys watching this sport or are you a participant?

Do the sustained injuries/deaths bother you or not?

I like watching and doing boxing (I am a kickboxer, but I do like hands-only rounds sometimes).

Injuries don't bother me; deaths obviously are horrific and very sad, but they don't bother me in the sense of 'It should be banned!' There are safety rules and regulations for a reason, and deaths are extremely rare and often just very tragic accidents, which can happen doing many things.

I actually find it harder to watch than to participate in (though obviously watching involves much higher levels so much harder contact and more significant injuries, which will be harder to see!) Watching your own clubmates is the worst one. You're so proud of them but it's horrible sometimes!

Doing both, watching now and then and participate in.

Fortunately, I didn't get any injuries in boxing so far. Boxers dying in a fight? don't know a case where this happened.

I don't watch any sports because I think most are too dangerous. Boxings just silly as rugby with the potential brain injuries.
