Banning Boxing Boxing has and probably always will be thought of as a noble sport by its supporters. If boxing where to be banned it would defiantly anger its supporters and maybe provoke a series of 'underground' boxing matches, which could lead to maybe more violent matches as there would be less control. If it isn't banned there would be outrage among non-supporters and violence may be brought out through the non-supporters. It would be easier to decide whether it should be banned or not if we looked at some of the reasons for and against. For: · It can be very violent and can lead to permanent mental and physical damage including death · The damages that people sustain can waist medical supplies, even though not much but it adds up, and for people who go into the ring trying to get hurt it is stupid to waste supplies on them. The money that is used to purchase these supplies could be used elsewhere and even the supplies could be used elsewhere as well · The BMA have wanted this banned since 1983, but have got no where with their plead · It can make a false idea in young peoples heads that this could be a quick and easy route to money that they can easily do, but ends up ruining their lives Against: · People fight and bet on fights for money as well as enjoyment and therefore want to keep enjoying themselves · As I said before if boxing were to be banned it would only drive the supporters to illegal underground boxing matches therefore there is no point · It s even thought of by some as a noble sport, eg peoples families may have been doing it for generations so why should they give up a tradition · People have a freedom to do whatever they want within the law, and if the law keeps getting tighter on what people can do, eventually there would be nothing legal to do
