Subject: RE: BS: Boxing; cruel, primitive & nauseating
Greg, I made two posts (now three) to this thread. Here they are.
1) Steers don't volunteer.
2) I don't go to boxing matches nor do I watch them on TV. Too many people get hurt badly. That is the nature of fighting. As Gnu said, when a guy is hit hard and disoriented, stop the damned fight. Michael Watson: coma for over six weeks, six brain surgeries and permanent partial paralysis. Davey Moore: dead a few days after the bout in 1963. Benny Paret: eighteen hits in six seconds, died as a result of his injuries in 1962. There are more. I don't know what that kinda shit is, but it ain't sport, imo.
