Okay, I know people who does boxing might have someone in their lives who disses this sport. When other people who have absolutely no idea how hard boxing is, make hate comments and say that its the weakest sport in the history of martial arts, it seriously gets me irritated and frustrated as crazy. Even from 2 rounds of sparring you get really tired if you don't have the stamina, and these fools tell me that they can beat anyone who does boxing in a round just because they see a couple of mma fights and some rocky movies. Are there any people in your lives that underestimate the honorable sport of boxing? I don't know if this was the right category to ask in, but I really had to post this one up.

Boxing has been an Olympic sport since 668 B.C. Boxing is called the Sweet Science for a reason. It's a game of Chess, and takes A LOT of skill to be great in it. I go to a Boxing/MMA gym Monday-Thursday and do it for the love of the sport. I don't discriminate against any other combat sports, because I have love for them ALL. Boxing isn't easy, it's no where NEAR easy, perfecting your technique and craft takes YEARS of hard work and dedication just like every other sport does. BUT you have an opposition trying to impose his technique and craft to your FACE and BODY, and different styles are there to make you continuously have to study the game....Boxing will never die, I'll always be a fan, and I'll keep training til my body says it's OVER!

Yup, used to know a guy that said boxing was gay because it's "two sweaty guys hugging each other". I told him to come down to the gym with me and see how gay it is after, he never took me up on the offer though.

haha, yes.. there are many of guys. I eventually "fighted" with them as they constantly were challenging me. So we went in a park, we put on the gloves and fought. As they are my friends, I din't want to hurt them, so I only used the jab. Still, they were not able to touch me, and they eventually run out of gas in about 1 min(they were desperately throwing punches in order to hurt me). So I would say that you should take one of those and have some fun with him. He will never make fun of this sport again, and eventually will show you respect after you play with him for a couple of minutes.

I have an ex pro NFL player in one of the gyms I train at. He said to me he's never worked this hard and had something BE so hard for him to learn and the guy is in excellent shape.

Boxing is no joke and the most beautiful, toughest sport on the planet.

It's funny that i read your comment and look at the guys sig below you and see guys hugging each other, lol.




But yeah Boxing is a tough sport. People Can't put a boxer up with an MMA fighter that's retarded. MMA fighters train different and fight differently, A boxer won't win a fight in a UFC match but an MMA fighter won't win a fight in a boxing match for sure. It's Dumb, and when people say it's a weak sport that's just a ****load of ignorance flying out there mouth, MMA has three rounds to 5 rounds, while almost in every case your takling about 12 for a boxer and althought those rounds are longer , boxer usualy end up fighting for logner periods of times, and MMa Fights are ended the moment someone stops defending themselves..... In boxing, for the most part, if your still moving your still able to fight.. And just to clear things up I'm not saying boxing is tougher then MMA because there's things boxers don't deal with like being kicked in the face or elbowed brutally while being layed out on the floor, and we don't have to be worried about being taken out by a silly submission.. but you get the point.

He's in excellent football shape! Everyone is different.

I have two friends, both excellent athletes, in fact, their athletic ability is comparable to what we see on t.v. One guy use to run a 4.3 40. He's explosive and agile. My other friend, nowhere near as fast, but, quick as lightning and his dexterity is way better than the other guy I mentioned. so, who would you say is the better athlete.

Here's the funny thing. The guy that runs the 40 in 4.3 sec and played football since he was 8 and dabbled in boxing and other forms of martial arts thinks that boxing much harder than football.

Yet, my other friend who excelled in soccer, boxed and competed in other martial arts wouldn't dare go back to playing football. He played football for one season and said it was the toughest sport and was quite intimidated by the contact that happens in the gridiron and he has sparred with world champs in Muay Thai and has had numerous fights in boxing and other types of martial arts. See what I'm sayin' .



I'm tellin' ya, there's no punch that can match the force of a sidekick or a roundhouse kick using the shin. Blocking a hook from Tyson is one thing, but, blocking a roundhouse kick with your forearms is a totally different type of pain, bro.

My instance might have been different as he challenged me saying "just cause you box doesn't mean you can fight."

This happened to me as well and I stopped one of my friends in the first round. Wasn't even trying to go too hard, just hit him with a body shot and he dropped then he got back up and I let him try and hit me for a little just to be nice then dropped him again with another body shot and by this time he called it quits.

The moment i get into a street fight that's exactly where I'm going Left hook to the body followed by a straight right to there ****ing beak. Getting punched in the nose sucks.... I'll play around with the jabs but once he tries to grab me I'm gonna Disassemble (whomever) rib cage.

Of course, a leg is much more powerful than your arm but...

A punch is still more lethal because it's easier to land. That's why you see most KO's come from punches because it's much harder to block or slip a punch than it is a kick that is coming from much farther.

For me, boxing and wrestling are the two most practical combat sports. Wrestling helps you in grappling obviously and being good with your hands can end a fight very quickly.

should step in the ring and try it for a few moments. Football player Mark Gastinaou tried as did Too Tall Jones and many others and they got there ass kicked. The world's strongest man, Paul Anderson tried against very bad opposition and lost two of four fights. Thank God he never fought a real fighter. Ron Stander easily beat Lyle Alzado in the amateurs. I could go on, but let them try it themselves.
