I dont think boxers are "registered" as deadly weapons. But if the cops/prosecutors find out you are a boxer that will certainly work against you.

Most definitely.

In a bare knuckle fist fight they're lethal weapons so to speak. Not registered but let's say a boxer gets into a fight and does hurt someone, and they're charged..........they'll need a really strong defense.

They arnt registered, there fists are...well i think boxers are, one of my boys cousin is a MMA fighter and his fists r registered as weapons and he got sent to jail cuz some guy started a fight with him in a bar and my boys cousin beat the sh*t outta him and got sent to jail.

At what point do they become dangerous weapons? Once you take a class? Once you have a fight? or Once you turn pro?

I'd say pro

As in the prosecution digs up your registered license as a professional.

Hey guys. This simply isn't true.

Legally, you'd have to prove your intent was to kill.

A fist isn't in itself classified as deadly in any court I've ever heard of.

Easier to do with a gun or a knife in most court's eyes because those tools are commonly accepted to be able to kill people.

I truly don't know where this myth started.

Now, if a boxer like Gerry Delaney who was convicted of manslaugher in a bar fight as a bouncer by striking the opponent and killed him wasn't classified as having deadly weapons, no one would be.

basically, i believe you must register your hands as weapons before you get your license.

No No my point was you're not registered as a lethal weapon. But you bet your ass the prosecution is going to dig up a license if you have one.........and they're going to use that against you in court.

That was my point.

The key here is to prove the intent was to kill.

kill=deadly weapon

fist= not classified as a deadly weapon.

Of course they would try to make something stick and argue that point.

But again, they'd have to prove your intent.

Getting into a fight isn't intent to kill someone generally.

I do get your point, but was basically telling the ts your hands aren't deadly per se.

Thats what I was having a hard time seeing. Your feet can be considered deadly weapons though so kicking somebody in the head isnt advisable.

The "my hands are registered deadly weapons because i'm a boxer/professional fighter/backbelt/" thing is a myth.

It's just a joke.

You don't get a harder time for being a pro boxer.

It's crazy to think that way,

This.

There has to be proof that your intent was to kill.

And if you're defending yourself, and use nothing but your fists, it's going to be awfully hard to prove that your intent was to kill the person. Unless of course you took it too far and continued beating someone until/beyond motionless.

You'll be penalized more than if you weren't a boxer. When you go to a boxing gym, they make you sign a form or agreement (can't remember because it was so long ago) that you cannot use what you have learned for anything other than self defense.
