Yep, it is basically legalized murder...or attempted murder. My first thought was that it must be an avenue of stress relief for people who are prone to violence but unable to be as violent as they want due to laws. But is that true? Can people bottle up their rage until game day and then let loose? Probably not. It's more of a contest of skill and endurance.
I don't know what to say about it except I feel sorry for people who lack any skills at all and who must resort to this to make a living.
I Hope We Lose!
The worst part is I was raised in family that loves this barbaric past time/ activity and I was forced to learn "the sweet science." Whoever came up with that should have faced the death penalty. I never had any hankering to beat on someone who has done me no harm or offered no insult. It is just another macho B.S method of jockism.
Is there a way both teams can lose?

Dude, boxing has become a greedy con. Sky Broadcasting charges people £ 15 for big fights now and anyone who wants to show it in public like a bar has to pay £ 250. To me, it's an anachronism of a sport, widely hated by the medical profession and large parts of the public who see it as primitive and barbaric, and, of course, controlled by greed and fixed fights. I used to watch it, but now like many other sports, I don't care.
