Obviously there is a risk to the health of any boxer that participates in the sport.Fortunatley there have been many safety and medical advances since the sport began to protect the welfare of the boxers.Many other contact and non contact sports are statiscally as hazardous,eg horse riding,car racing,rugby,rock climbing to mention but a few.

Boxing is a sport for morons. If you can call it a sport. The thugs will get kids serously injured or killed. The popularity is dying and soon it will be gone. Looks like the UFC is taking over. So popular due to white fighters.
