The answer is easy. If you are a top level athlete then boxing is the hardest. When training up to 12 weeks for a fight boxers run 5-7 miles per day six days a week. After running they go to the gym Spar, hit the bags and do other weights and gym work for two hours a day at least.
That is what I thought when I saw the title too. Boxing is tough. Team sports are the least tough in my opinion since you have a teammate who can help you.
None sense- think of the training that goes into rider the Tour de France. It takes years to build the endurance just to complete such an event. Add to that the anaerobic fitness and need to climb steep long mountain passes that even cars can struggle up. 12x 3 minute rounds of boxing are tough but nothing like the demands of a Grand Tour
Cheerleading was the toughest for me I guess, takes hours to train physical aspect, build up rapport with your team, memorize the dance moves etc. The training I did for that was actually tougher then army training, rock climbing and track & field.

My friends are watching boxing right now and I can't understand how they enjoy watching 2 men hit each other? And boxers, why would you willingly hurt yourself?

Do you view Mixed Martial Arts (UFC) as a real sport?I personally do, but I come across people all the time who say otherwise. Yet when they try to provide reasoning for their decision, they usually aren't very good arguments. I'm curious as to how some of you feel.

Floyd Mayweather is the best boxer of the past 20 years without a doubt. He has never lost and has an amazing defense.
