I watched the boxing match last night and it was just awful!!! I had no idea that they blasted their faces like that and its okay to just keep going right on with blood splattering all over. It was just the worst thing. Then I look at all the people sitting there and really getting into the fight. I then thought of two things, one how is are dog fights much different? And another is why was there so much shock when Tyson bit the other guys ear? Its already bordering on animalistic behavior why not bite someones ear? I dont condone either animal nor boxing and animal fighting is wayyy worse in my opinion. But both seem pretty bad to me. Are you a boxing fan or do you feel this way also? What are your thoughts?

It sounds like this may have been your first time of watching a boxing match. I guess that is why men like it more than women. I myself don't really care very much for the sport, although I have watched it a time or two. I even seen a live match in Atlantic City one time. But really, there are a lot of other sports that are a lot more interesting to watch. As a matter of fact, I couldn't name one single boxer that is currently active. I guess the only thing that makes boxing ok, or better than animals fighting, is because the men are willing to get up there and do it. And some of them are so bound and determined, that they become champions. Thanks for starting this discussion. I hope you have a great day!

Yes it was the first time, and I was just so upset/amazed by its brutality. And that they just kept going up there. About the name thing, I couldnt even remember the names of the boxers I had watched the previous night. The willingness for the fighter to get out there and just fight till only one remains in itself is indescribable. And I am with you on the better sports to watch. I would pick Bowling before that. Haha
