Of course, some lower level boxers fight often, but most high level pros only fight a few times per year tops.
But if you take sparring into account then boxers take way more head trauma than football players.

i tend to agree, but it depends on their careers. the footballers position, the boxer's style, the level of competition, etc.

i agree that sparring and the amateurs is also where a good portion of the damage piles up. these guys can handle themselves. the blows they shake off are mind blowing.

both sports will produce athletes that are horrible depleted in their old age.


big football hits are as bad as any single impact that you'll see in boxing. it's very rare, but both can kill. i've never played football, but i've knocked people out cold playing hockey. cold. out on a stretcher. it's nothing to be proud of, but it's the truth. that's more damage than most boxers will ever go through from one blow.


the worst head trauma in sport is the sustained beating in boxing ring, though. the gloves, rules, level of conditioning, and the skill are what allow guys to survive and take a butt kicking that's unique to the sport. it's the blows that don't cause a knockout and continue to pile up that often do the worst damage.


most of the life changing injuries and deaths i've come across in boxing were of the extended beating variety. late round knockouts, usually, where a guy is hurt often and able survive. guys can even finish the fight and collapse.




to answer the TS:



not as popular as mike tyson, who was american and an incredibly polarizing and controversial figure outside of the ring.

anybody with a style like that at HW is going to be a popular figure. there's something in the primal ooze that draws people to HW who fight like that. they're awesome specimens.


manny pacquaio isn't american, is he? he's faded a bit, but you you remember that guy's heyday?
guy made some bank and had a few american fans to say the least.

tyson is his idol. he emulates his style. he might not have the power, at least in the amateur ranks, we'll have to see if as a pro he does.
