It may seem like a silly question - Infact i would say it is indeed abit of a silly question. However, why do you think anyone would choose to box? Numerous boxers have varying reasons for picking up the sweet science, but why would one want to indulge in what is a pretty brutal sport.
I mean, the amount of punch drunk fighters there have been, or worse, fighters that have been left wheelchair ridden due to the sport - Does this not put people off boxing?
When the objective is to bring pain to another human, i find it really weird that so many people still want to box. Obviously i understand that in some circumstances, some people may have no other option, in other scenarios it's a family tradition, or just something to gain fitness.
What do you guys think, why do people choose to box? Especially when schooling gives so many options..
Btw please don't take this as a rant against boxing, i love watching it, however, sometimes it really boggles my mind as to why someone would want to face that kind of danger.
