Outlaw Boxing for Good

June 10, 2005

Re "Journeyman in a Fight for His Life," June 4: I have always considered the sport of boxing barbaric, disgusting and utterly hypocritical. How can we tell our children that the use of physical violence is morally wrong when fighters are paid to viciously beat one another to unconsciousness as others sit by reveling in vicarious bloodlust? Anywhere but in the ring this would be a crime.

There is no place in a civilized society for this cruel and shameful practice, and we owe it to our children to outlaw it for once and for all.
