why the hell would anyone want to be a boxer?

ok,lets leave out the money part for a moment. seriously,

are these people's egos that fvcking important that they're

willing to get brain damage,or a whole myriad of other

injuries,resulting from constantly being pummeled in the

head,face,ribs,neck,etc...? i'm not ranting or anything.i just

don't understand what the hell these idiots are thinking.

usually people use alcohol consumption as the catalyst that

causes violent behavior. but these guys/gals aren't drinking

alcohol,or hopped up on goofs balls. so ,why do it? i see these

ufc guys fighting bare knuckle against one another,and for what?

bragging rights? why the fvck is it so g*ddamned important to

them? i know, i know-you're going to ask me,why is it so important

to me? well i have just always wondered this. that's all.are these

people just extraordinarily violent people who have serious anger

issues,and the only way to cope with this anger is to release it upon

another person? it's like they want to hurt people,but they have to do

it in a "legal" way,a way that won't cause them to be imprisoned for

the next 60 years of their sad lives.so,ufc,and boxing was formed. i

suppose,to them,life has very little meaning. pretty pathetic. just look

at tyson,what the fvck was going through that retard's head,when he

got that moronic looking tattoo on his FACE?! if you ask me,they

just seem like selfish egomaniacal narcissists. a lot of these people

have families.and it's like they don't even give a fvck that the risk of

death is so close,and may result in them making their own children

father/motherless. all they care about are their overly inflated egos.

i mean,what-they can't find any other form of employment that doesn't

require excessive violence ? geez,grow the fvck up people!

Update:

well it's clear,nobody will agree with me..so,sorry for asking a logical question.

    you raise some good points, actually. roy jones himself said many of the things you said. for me, i was a skinny, sickly child with asthma, and boxing and karate helped me get strong. my asthma went away, and i got in great shape. helped with my self esteem also.. the brain is not meant to get hit, nor is the body, really, but your first sentence is crucially inaccurate. you CAN'T leave the money part out of this because for lots of guys, it's a way out of poverty. now why guys like pacquiao, mayweather, and others hang around longer is beyond me.

    Because its fun, some people like to go outside and play basketball, some people like box with boxing gloves and see wo hits the canvs first. Its not about ego. Its about sport. Some people just like the sport of boxing. Yes there is brain damage but thats just part of the game. And sometimes theres even money involved. By the way. I was watching a show last time and it had facts that more people die from Boat Fishing every year than they do from boxing. And that was because they were drunk and driving boats.

    People do things they enjoy, You for instance enjoy going on-line and trying to cause trouble (you say you are not ranting but call people idiots etc and use sensationalist wording)and they like boxing against similarly minded people who also like boxing.

    You need to grow up yourself as you have shown yourself to be extremely immature.
