Obviously boxing fans for the most part would agree with this, whether you are looking at the sport from a physical or mental standpoint.

Physically, I'd put hockey second.

Mentally, I know people might laugh but apparently golf would be.

I agree. I find Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to be as tough as boxing in terms of training. Nothing else comes even close to combat sports in terms of toughness, IMO.

F1 and futebol I think are tougher. There are boxers that are out of shape and can still reach the pinnacle of the sport whereas most F1 drivers are pictures of fitness and athleticism and futebol goes without saying.

by no means is it easy but you got all these guys that abuse their bodies and constantly disrespect the sport and can still succeed and get close to and/or reach the top. Fighting I think is ONE of the most basic human instincts but, can be sharpened in to whatever style one trains in.
