Should boxing be banned?Watch
In 5 years, 3 deaths have occurred. What do you think? Is a violent-resorting yet enjoyable sport worth banning?
You could say the same with horse-racing. That's dangerous, should we ban it? Again, presuming they're aware of the risks, then no. We shouldn't necessarily ban sports solely because of the risks associated with them.
It’s not even close to being a dangerous sport.
Cheerleading has more than that in a year. Equestrianism can have 3 deaths in 5 days in the UK alone. And most of those fatalities will be of teenage girls not grown men.
By proportion, cheerleading is easily the most dangerous sport for deaths and critical injuries. By volume it’s easily horse riding.
Boxing is extremely safe by comparison
And you spend months training only to tell some one you box and get the reply ‘. Oh my sister does that too.’ Then you think what’s the bloody point in all the training etc I’ve just done, when boxing is being gradually turned into a women’s sport.
I mean there are hardly droves of men who want to take up ballet or netball. We leave those sports to women.
