Boxing is the sweet science . Watching two great boxers is a wonder to behold . There is an art to boxing . Great boxers are disciplined , can control
their anger and are patient . There is strategy to boxing and MMA .
MMA . Take Holly Holm for example , a former pro boxer . Watching her foot work , bouncing and moving on the balls of her feet like a dancer , ducking
under punches , making her opponet chase her , then stepping in with that powerful left jab , combos or a high kick . Magnificent. Just ask Ronda
Rousey (who is great grappler but no stand up game).
Boxing and MMA is not street fighting . In both , each fighter is different so you study your opponent and create a game plan , no fight is the same .
Street fighting is a chaotic and sloppy mess . No strategy , it is violence for vilonce sake and no sportsmanship . In boxing and MMA there is
sportmanship for the most part . Sure there are some ass**les , but for the most part they dont want to do permanent damage or kill anyone , but it
people die in their chosen profession all the time . You choose a dangerous profession , then you take those chances .Look at the match between Ray
Boom Boom Mancini against Kim Duk-koo(both great boxers) , I remember watching that fight well . Kim went the distance and made Boom Boom work for it
every round . Kim died 4 days after the fight from brain injuries .
This affected Boom Boom greatly . Hell , I was a teenager at the time and I was stunned by his death . But Boom Boom kept boxing until his retirement
