Subject: RE: BS: Boxing; cruel, primitive & nauseating
Weird thing is that, so I am told, it was the introduction of gloves that resulted in more head injuries and brain damage. I must say that I am neither for nor against but did find it intriguing that the bare-knuckle fighters rarely used head punches because it caused their hands too much damage! Not saying we should re-introduce bare-knuckle stuff either but, just maybe, mixed martial arts is not as bad as boxing?
Anyone know the if the ratio of damage done in MMA or even Thai Boxing is better or worse that boxing?
