Boxing

I did a charity evening for the NSPCC tonight, they had Boxing!I have always thought of this as barbaric, tonight I was able to see the skill and dedication that the fighters had put in. They were all investment bankers (or something like that) and had trained for the
last few months.

I still did not enjoy it, and I still believe it to be wrong.The fitness levels were impressive, but it did not appeal.

The worst part for me was watching the crowd, they were like a pack
of animals, getting more excited as they could see that one of the
men might get hurt and fall. I heard one woman shout "Kill him" What
noble creatures we are. They even had the girls with the "round 2"
boards...... Does it still have a place in modern society?

That's very strange.

Was it an NSPCC organised event, or an event people were running and the profits go to NSPCC? I think we have a rule against using boxing to fundraise with (and encourage children to take part in) and I was fairly sure NSPCC did too...

it's wrong, but, as with most of the things in our society that shouldn't be there, it's a big money business.

The NSPCC had a person there thanking them all very much, and they showed there video all night.

They all really did well, except the audience..... I hate that about our nature

but better inside watching consenting fighters with medics on hand than outside . . .
