    Okay hear me out. Last year my friend was bullying another kid in my year who I liked so me and my mates set up a boxing match between them to settle it. Surprise surprise the short fat bully lost. I still consider him my next mate regardless of his past but recently he's been a **** to me, and I want to box him. He's a cocky **** and is saying 'I want bare knuckle' but actually I don't want it, he's the only one who does. Any advice on what to do?

    Please for the love of god, don't do it. What's violence going to do? Make you both look ridiculous and as bad as each other. Settle your differences in a civilised way or part ways and get on with your lives. :yy:

    Whatever you're arguing over/whatever the dispute is, I can tell you right now it most likely doesn't matter at all and isn't worth the potential repercussions.

    I'm very split. I've tried settling normally but I really wanna get my anger out because I fear one day I will lash out. I for example have a gay uncle and he said 'I think homosexuals should be shot' he doesn't mean it but he knows it'll annoy me. I don't even think he's my friend anymore but there's no one else in my class...

    No, don't do it. Not worth it. Let him thrive in his own ignorance, it's not your problem. If he continues to be offensive, it's not your job to remain friends with him out of sympathy. Get rid of his negativity from your life. But please, don't get involved in some ridiculous and meaningless physical altercation for absolutely no reason. It's silly.

    You need to have a thicker skin though. The best weapon is silence, he'll get bored if you don't give him the attention he wants.

    I understand the silence, I try it but he always just seems to find a way to annoy me once again. I guess i'll leave the boxing thing then
