Boxing like all other sports that involve physical contact, it has a certain amount of risk involved. Some would say more than a lot of other contact sports. I mean these sorts men and women are constantly taking shots to the head and that cannot be good.
Today’s boxers are safer than they ever have been, with bigger, better padded gloves, shorter bouts with fewer rounds, and referees that are more involved and better trained to identify at risk boxers, some venues even require that cat scans or MRIs be conducted at the conclusion of the match, but all it takes is that one punch.
In some cases of death in the ring or shortly after, or those permanently paralyzed or put in a coma did not appear to be in trouble, or all that battered during the fight. Manny Sobral, a Canadian junior middleweight once analyzed this phenomenon like this: "It's strange, fighters like Jake LaMotta have all those wars and finish up fine, yet another guy might die after a fight. It's like a lottery." Indeed, a lottery in which no right-minded fighter wants a ticket.
What more can be done to make the sport safer without turning it into a sport no one would be interested in watching? If that were to happen, even the boxers themselves would probably not be interested in participating.
The majority of boxing injuries are head, face, and neck injuries and 70 percent of all injuries to professional and amateur boxers are head injuries and nearly half of those are concussions. The effects of concussion are not always immediately recognizable and often lead to neurological or serious brain damage, which is often fatal.
A boxer is injured statistically once per 1000 hours of participation. Of high school students participating in full-contact sports, boxing is actually safer than football, where players are injured 4.4 times per 1000, 2.5 times per 1000 in wrestling, and 2.4 times per 1000 hours for soccer.
So, what is the trade-off? Most medical associations recommend banning boxing and other full-contact sports for school-aged adolescents and some recommend a ban on boxing at all levels; however, those that participate in sports during their school-aged years are more confident, better disciplined, and get better grades than those that do not. Which leads to the question of which you would prefer your adolescents to participate in, sports or street gangs? Of course you would prefer sports. Most adolescents join gangs to fit-in, or to have a sense of belonging and organized sports can provide that for them.
