When I say we, I mean the boxers, the fans, promoters, managers, trainers and any other person’s involved in the sport. The cogs that keep boxing going, whobelieve in it, defend and protect it, write about it, talk about it, support and revel in it and ultimately live off it!
Boxing will always need to be defended from a moral perspective, some folk will never accept two human beings inflicting pain on each other for the amusement of a paying baying crowd. And yes tragic accidents have accured adding weight to the anti boxing’s fraternities arguments. But boxing has given generations of people more pleasure than pain and other sports have a much higher percentage of tragic accidents and fatalities than boxing. It doesnt make it right, but it probably isnt a good idea to speed around a track on a motorbike or racing car at break neck speeds etc. An ideal world it isnt, but in it, boxing has turned around and enanced many more lives than it has ruined. But this is a debate reserved for a totally different day.
