Should boxing be banned?

Boxing unlike any other sport. The aim is to hurt other man, and above all to knok him out. The sports appeals to the worst and most violent parts of human nature. Such a savage sport has no place in modern society. We should not let men do this to each other. W should not offer money to encourage them to fight. We should also ban it as a form of public entertainment..

Boxers know the risk of their sport and choose freely to fight. They are also well-paid for the dangers of fighting. We have to allow people to make their own decisions in life. The government should not ban something adults choose to do unless it clearly affects other people. In boxing, it is the boxer who takes the risk and who will pay the price, no one else. Other sports are also dangerous, for example horse-riding, skiing or parachuting- should we ban those too?
