I was listening to some people talking on the radio and they were discussing whether the sport of boxing should be banned.
They were saying that boxing was a barbaric sport where people just got a thrill of watching two men trying to kill each other.
I had to laugh when I thought about football and how many men got concussions or had bones broken in the attempt to get a ball. I thought about hockey where the men would actually beat each other up during the game and everyone would cheer for the blood. I couldn’t see where boxing was more barbaric than these sports. Personally, I am a big fan of the sport of boxing. I think the only thing barbaric about boxing, is when they don’t have perfect air conditioning in the arena. If I were working out in that ring, I would want plenty of air conditioning to keep me from sweating. I would think that if the ring were too warm, you wouldn’t be able to concentrate. Your energy would be low and you wouldn’t have good stamina if it were too warm in the arena. Even with a lot of air conditioning, you would be sweating. When there is sweat running down into your eyes, they begin to burn and you can’t see well. I would think it would be better to have the air conditioning so low that it felt like it was the middle of winter. I’m sure some people wouldn’t be so happy with that, but I think the air conditioning would be better for the boxers and for the spectators.
