BOXING RULES NEEDS TO IMPROVE TO BETTER PROTECT FIGHTERS

KALAMAZOO, MI– BOXING IS A SPORT TO WHERE A PERSON CAN SHOWCASE THEIR SKILLS WHETHER IT’S FROM THE STREETS AT A YOUNG AGE TO A LIFE TIME DREAM. A FIGHTERS TRAINING CONSIST OF ALOT OF TIMELESS DEDICATION TO PERFECT THEMSELVES TO BE THE BEST IN THE WORLD AT WHAT THEY DO, BUT WITH THAT A PRICE WILL BE PAID; LONG OR SHORT TERM. THE PRICE OF FAME AS A FIGHTER IS A DREAM COME TRUE- MONEY, POWER, GLORY, RECOGNITION, BRAGGING RIGHTS…ETC, THE SPORT ITSELF CONCERNS THEMSELVES WITH ONLY ONE THING: MAKING THE MONEY TO KEEP THE SPORT THRIVING AND THAT’S THE BOTTOM LINE, NOT TO SAY THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT THE FIGHTERS; THEY DO IN EVERY WAY. AFTER THE DEATH OF KIM DUK- KOO BY BOOM BOOM MANCINI (1982) THEY CHANGED THE FIGHTS FROM 15 ROUNDS TO 12 ROUNDS THINKING THAT WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM, BUT SINCE THE SPORT BEGAN IN 1884 THERE HAVE BEEN APPROXIMATELY 500 FIGHTERS AND COUNTING WHO HAS DIED FROM DANIEL MARSHALL (1926) TO NOW PATRICK DAY (2019) BOXING HAS THE ABILITY TO MAKE IT MORE SAFE BUT THEY WON’T; WHY CAUSE IT WOULD TAKE AWAY THE TRUE ESSENCE OF THE SPORT AND FANS WILL FIND IT BORING. THEIR FIRST PRIORITY : MAKE THE FIGHTERS HEALTH A MUST AT ALL TIMES FROM EDUCATE AND BETTER TRAIN OFFICIALS/REFEREES TO LOOK MORE CLOSELY TO SEE IF A FIGHTER IS IN DANGER AND NOT WAIT TO SEE IF HE/SHE CAN’T DEFEND THEMSELVES TO INSTALLING A OUTSIDE REF AT RING SIDE WITH FULL AUTHORITY TO MAKE SURE NOTING IS WRONG DURING THE FIGHT IF THE REF IN THE RING DOESN’T SEE IT. SO FAR 4 FIGHTERS HAVE DIED THIS YEAR ALONE WITH 3 BEING THE MOST BACK IN 2009. IF BOXING KEEPS GOING THIS WAY THE NUMBER OF DEATHS IN THE RING OR OUTSIDE AFTER A BOXER CAREER IS OVER LIKE MUHAMMAD ALI ( PARKINSON ) WILL CONTINUE TO RISE, PATRICK DAY’S DEATH PROVES THAT THIS MUST CHANGE. SO BOXING DO THE RIGHT THING, MAKE IT SAFER FOR FIGHTERS- NOT CONTINUE TO BRUTALIZE THE SPORT FOR A PROFIT.
