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.


· 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


· 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

· 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

· 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
