Thread Name: BS: Boxing; cruel, primitive & nauseating
Subject: RE: BS: Boxing; cruel, primitive & nauseating
In my early youth I learned about boxing from an instructor that taught kids. I used to attend fights at various arenas with him. There is an art here. There is a difference which has become obliterated, that of a boxer requiring physical skill with coordination and footwork and a fighter, someone who just ploughs his way with only brute force and without much skill. Apparently Ali and Joe Louis were both fighters and boxers.

As for blood sports, it seems to me that football is worse for it's brutality although
I'm not a fan of either sport, boxing or football.

What is really cruel, primitive and nauseating is how some cops are treating
Occupiers and students.
