What is everyone's views on women in boxing?

I watched the Olympics and there was women boxing first and then male boxing took place afterwards.

Noticed many get into the sport these days unlike in the 80s.

You know the way you feel when a tap is running?

That’s how I feel about Women’s boxing.

As a woman I love it!

It might not be as popular as many male-dominated sports are but I think it's important we have that representation and show young girls and women they can do these things too - I think the rise in it is due to a lot more women wanting to either be able to show they can do these things as well as men (even often better than them) and in general I know a lot of women taking boxing classes as self-defense which is also really great!

Not as violent as taekwondo, and there are other forms of fighting / martial arts in the Olympics. Pretty sure there are more injuries from gymnastics and horse riding than in boxing.

There have been no dangerous incidents involving boxing in this Olympics so far. You clearly have no knowledge about the sport, and are very narrow-minded.

I dont like taekwondo either. The sole intent of both is literally to beat up and 'knock out' your opponent, its shouldnt be a shock why there are high rates of long-term brain damage and plenty of other injuries that come out of the sport, even if there havent been any in this year's Olympics yet.

Haven’t you watched amateur boxing ? 95% of the fights have went the full distance in the Olympics. In amateur boxing the gloves are heavier so less risk and damage caused from punches.

You said “there are ***high***rates of long-term brain damage”. Have you got proof of this?

Actually, there have been scientific reports linking football to dementia / brain damage, but you probably don’t want that not to be in the Olympics…

You don’t think the fighters know fighting can lead to brain damage…..

I don't mind, on the contrary I have a high opinion on that. Boxing is a tough and physical sport that required high persistance and a good body coordination, and everyone who gives this a try has my deep respect. Apart from the gender

Driving_Mad you certainly agree.

Yeah for sure I don’t mind it, if I like a certain fighter’s fighting style I’ll watch them fight regardless of whether they are male or female. For example Katie Taylor is very good and I like watching her fights.
