As a sport should boxing be banned from the Olympic Games? Boxing is a popular sport that some people enjoy to watch as two opponents try to knock each other out on to the ground or win by points. I think that boxing is moral and should not be banned from the Olympics. Intentions The goal in boxing is to purposely hurt and harm your opponent. Even though other sports, like grid iron and rugby, can be dangerous and the injuries are often accidental.
In boxing however, opponents are trying to hurt their opponent on purpose so they can be knocked to the ground or they can’t carry on with the fight. These are the immoral intentions of boxing when you try to knock your opponent out. Other intention of boxing is the money so people pick to do boxing so they can earn more money than other people. Also the boxer’s dreams are to become the number one and win the gold medal at the Olympics and to show the world how great athletes they are.
These are the moral aspects of why boxers compete in this sport. Circumstances The sport boxing is different from boxing in anger. The sport boxing aim is that you have to try to knock the other person out or to win by points and also there is the safety when the boxer is on the ground the ref stops the fight. There are immoral points in the sport boxing when you try to knock the other person out but the moral points are it’s a sport and they both compete to become the best.
But when it comes to boxing in anger the fighters just try knock the other person out without care of the other persons safety and there releasing their anger out on the other person and doing everything they can to win the fight so there is no moral intentions in boxing out of anger but boxing in anger always lead to immoral decisions and don’t care for the other persons safety so there is a moral difference. Consequences The consequences of boxing are that it is a dangerous sport. While safety rules have been introduced boxing is still a dangerous sport. A lot of boxers have died from this sport ether in the ring or shortly after the ight.
Deaths are not the only costs of boxing other consequences such as brain damage affect the boxer to a point which they cannot carry on fighting. Nature of the act it self Well I think that trying to knock someone else unconscious is wrong and immoral but in the sport boxing the two boxers picked to do this sport and they both know what the risks are when it comes to boxing. Also the boxer knows that he is putting his body on the line but the boxer is willing to risk it to become a better athlete and become famous and have the number one title in boxing so there is an immoral decision when knocking someone unconscious.
Conclusion So my conclusion is that despite all the risks and dangerous consequences boxing is a sport that is watched and enjoyed by a lot of people and people will continue to take the sport and train good fighters. Fighting will continue because people are given talents and it’s the only thing there good at and also they want to be rich and famous and want be known by the world. So I think that boxing should not be banned from the Olympic Games and boxing is moral but that is just my opinion as to if boxing should be banned from the Olympics.
