Default ESPN ranks Boxing as the #1 toughest sport

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/sportSkills

1)Boxing
2)Ice Hockey
3)Football
4)Basketball
5)Wrestling
6)Martial Arts

Basically they have 10 criteria for each sport and they are scored from 1-10 and the average is calculated at the end using the scores of the criteria.

The score for boxing using the criteria out of /10 is as follows:
1)Endurance:8.63
2)Strength:8.13
3)Power:8.63
4)Speed:6.38
5)Agility:6.25
6)Flexibility:4.38

8)Durability:8.50
9)Eye-Hand Co-ordination:7.0
10)Analytic Aptitude: 5.63

I know this is a boxing forum and everyone's going to most likely agree on boxing, but curious to see your thoughts on the rest of the list?

And they SERIOUSLY undersold it. The Analytical portion only got a 5.63? By their definition that category means 'ability to adapt strategy to situation'.

Is that not insanely integral to boxing?

Speed...only 6.38?
Agility...only 6.25?
Hand-Eye Coordination...only 7?

Boxing is the toughest BY FAR.

even though i agree boxing should be #1 i cant take their list seriously given the fact they dont have a clue what boxing is about.

all the things that are most important in boxing like speed, flexibility, agility and analytic aptitude are ranked low. while far less important attributes like strenghts and power are ranked high. not saying you dont need strenght and power but they should be ranked the lowest out of these attributes not at the top.

and how is nerve and durability not a 9 or 10? what sport requires more nerve than boxing? these fools are clueless, as is often the case with espn.
