Are you referring to boxing, my friend?? If so, yes, I think its brutal and barbaric. How anyone can find two men beating the living crap out of each other to the point of, sometimes, brain damage, etc entertaining is beyond me!! Good thread! Thanks.
My nephew is startin gto get deep into the "Fight club" nightlife. I myself enjoy the matches but kids now are in backyards or peolpes basement literally beating the the snot of each other until someone taps out or gets knocked out.
I have a few friends, adults, that do full contact fighting...no safety gear at all. It is hard for me to watch to be honest. I have had to excuse myself and go outside at one point. It's a rough thing, but some love to do it!
My thoughts are that things like this exploits participants by greedy promoters catering to a blood thirsty few. I would try to talk your nephew out of it. Local boxing and wrestling circuits are absolutely notorious for taking them in and spitting them out.
