I see that the London 2012 Olympics will include Women's Boxing for the first time in 100 years. Should Women be allowed to Box at the Olympic Games/
No, I believe that women should not participate in Boxing at the Olympics. I don’t really like Boxing as a sport, but I put up with it for men. It is just not right for women to participate in fighting at all.
I don't think anybody should participate in boxing. It's a brutal sport that leads participants into major health problems. I especially dislike seeing women participate because it makes them appear aggressive and manly. I'm not comfortable with it.
Well personally I do not like boxing per see. Lokk as a youngster I admired Muhammad Ali in his prime. But i see the results on his health of brain injury. I would hate to see the further development of this sport which highlights violence as a way of resolving conflict
Definitely. And I'm not just saying that because one of the best female boxers in the world currently is Canadian
Boxing is a sport that involves as much skill as violence. It's no more violent than football or hockey in my opinion.
Sure, why not. To the extent boxing is good or bad, it is good or bad for men an women, not just women.
I don't think boxing should be a sport at all, but if men's boxing is represented in the Olympics, women's boxing should also.
