Why on earth in this day and age can we allow a sport that involves deliberately hurting the oppositon? I'm Glad Lewes isn't famous for such dangerous and violent traditions.

Good idea. Sweden saw the light and banned it in 1970.

After reading recent threads on here it appears even the Forum can be verbally dangerous. By the way lets ban Boxing day.

In one of those lovely paradoxes, Taff, cyclists live a couple of years longer on average than non-cyclists, on account of being fitter.
Teacher - if banning Boxing Day means I won't have to go to the mother-in-law's for dinner, I'm all for it.

I was devastated when Marco Simoncelli died on the track at the Moto Gp the other week, but he was doing what he loved and lived for. Maybe boxers feel the same.

Boxing is as much about stopping your opponent from hitting you as it is about hitting him. If you visit a boxing club you will find that all the young men there are very courteous and respectful. The school bully rarely joins a boxing club. Added to which the medical and opponent match controls actually make boxing one of the less dangerous sports. The days of the cauliflower ear and finishing up "punch-drunk"etc were over many years ago.
