@Mikey in the words of a great poster: 'This is prize fighting. I don't give a **** about your family or your feelings".

And don't you start getting all holier- than- thou on me either, Mr Rogers. You're more addicted to violence than I am. I've literally never met anyone who watches more of it than you do! That's not a knock, either. I think it's great.

If there was no potential for KO's in Boxing, you wouldn't watch it. Don't even try and deny it. And don't give me a spiel about 'Sport' or the 'The sweet science' either. We both know it's ********. We watch it because we enjoy watching people beat the living shyte out of another. We are armchair Neanderthals. 

We are what we are my friend. Embrace your true nature!

Great poster!? Hold on while I clear up the sick that just came up!. Haha

Yeah, I love violence! But it's in a conflicted way. I also love people, families, functional brains!  So when the violence leads to loss of those things its sometimes hard to cheer!

Here's the problem as I see it:

What makes a fight thrilling is not just inextricably intertwined with what causes fighters to develop brain damage. Those two things are literally the same thing.  A classic 'Double-edged sword'. There is absolutely no way around this dichotomy.  Even if a fight doesn't end in a KO/TKO/RTD, the fact remains that fighting is only exciting when people get hit, and getting hit causes CTE.  

Look at Mayweather. He was astoundingly good at winning Boxing fights. But what he wasn't good at was putting on exciting fights. He was and is reviled, largely, by the fan base. Roger Mayweather, well the Mamba was a totally different kettle of fish. He was a much more entertaining fighter, but he fought on his chin a lot and we all know the story of that.

There's just no way around it. Some things are just inescapable.
