Default Does having a religion make you better at boxing?

I've noticed there are alot of religious boxers. Boxers who actually are religious.
I've noticed that even the top boxers are religious and thank their gods after wins.

I don't have a religion and I've noticed I am low on spirit and self confidence sometimes when I fight during sparring. Do people who box and have a religion have more spirit
and motivation when they fight thus they have more mental toughness and ability for when they fight? They believe that they will win?

are there any boxers who do not have a religion that are top boxers?

Religious faith can motivate people to do many things, mass suicides, genocide, torture and murder of those who are thought to be heretics or witches, support of evil regime and goverment etc.

As a matter of fact religious faith has always been a tool to get the ignorant masses to do the will of the powerful. So sure, boxers can use religious faith to motivate themselves and beat this **** out of someone, religion and violence go hand in hand.

I have no religion, and think religious faith is one of the biggest obstacle to human progress. I dont need superstition and myths or a " baby-killing, kitten-drowning, slavery-condoning, genocide-commanding sadistic god" to motivate myself.

Actually what motivates me is self belief and the ability to make choices and think for myself. Boxing is an individual sport so self belief is just as important as believing in a non-existent god.

religion is great and helps me with boxing sometimes i guess but you shouldnt be looking for a religion to solely help you in boxing, its means so much more than that

Money is different than religion, money is neutral unit of exchange to obtain or store wealth.

Money doesnt tell people what they should think or how they should behave.
