Default Is boxing a martial art?

A lot of people I know who practice traditional martial arts dont consider boxing a martial art. I think this is ridiculous, so I just wanted to know what people think about this.

(Btw I've sparred with these traditional martial artists and owned them with basic boxing skills)

For me, boxing is the best martial art style. Those kung fu praying mantis **** doesnt work in a real fight. Most martial arts are for movies only.

I don't consider it a martial art. It's a sport. A martial sport, if you like...

Like troy fine said, every fighting technique is not a martial art.

Boxing is my preferred fighting technique, but it's not a martial art.The term martial art has to do with the techniques first developed more than a 1,000 years ago in various places in asia.

I agree. The keyword is ART. There's a lot more to it than just fighting. Boxing is a sport, pure and simple.

Kickboxing is a sport version of karate, tae kwon do etc. Kickboxing and boxing are contests, nothing else, therefore they're sports. they have no philosophical base, or a RIGHT way of doing things. As long as what you do in the ring is within the rules, you're free to do whatever you can come up with to win.
Karate and Tae kwon do, are fighting systems, with basis in certain philosophies, and strict forms of movements. Karate and Tae kwon do are different. How are they different, they both involve kicks and punches? The answer is in the form kicks and punches take in each martial art.

In boxing there are many ways to throw a hook. Sure, people might bicker about which way is the correct way to throw a hook, but when it comes down to it, it really doesn't matter as long as you hit the guy with your knuckles.
there's a big difference between sports and martial arts.

That it is. But one thing's for sure, it's not a martial art. It's one of those things that has no leeway with the terminology.

Here's the definition :

martial arts, various forms of self-defense, usually weaponless, based on techniques developed in ancient China, India, and Tibet. In modern times they have come into wide use for self-protection, as competitive sports, and for exercise.

Boxing wasn't created in asia, so therefor it is not a martial art
