No way it is bad enough that people with all their faculties fight but those without them all will get seriously hurt.

i used the work in gym, this "special" guy came down a lot to help out(sat and talked :p ) and the guy was strong!! He didnt work out, play sport or anything, he was just a big naturally strong guy!! I'm told a lot of "special" people are(in general) naturally strong.

if it gets it, they gonna make sure that all the people fighting are able to and to do it safely, they aint gonna put someone in there if they know they are gonna get completly owned, i see no reason why they shouldnt be allowed, if they can do other sports why not boxing?

I surprised someone had the balls to ask that question a boxing site, hat off to your bravery. People like yaself should be boxers. ;)

There are more unpredictable and dangerous sports out there, where you can have your gonads or eyes ripped out, or be splattered across land (skydiving).

Indeed, there are a lot of dangerous sports.
For example sports involving cars or motors.

Its a good, valid question, i got the wrong idea at first from the thread title but the poll question is - Should they have boxing in the Special Olympics

i think it would be very difficult to organise.

Hunna

exactly, it would be cruel and difficult to organize. It would be complicated to organize, what if an "able bodied" amateur boxer ended up deaf, partly brain damaged and/or internal organ damage AFTER a normal amateur bout with another able bodied athlete. Do you think it would be suitable for a special olympics to be setup?

Hunna

There are enough serious injuries as it is in boxing today? boxing in special olympics would be dangerous and bring bad publicity to boxing.
