I like the fact that boxers are as a general rule very approachable and pleasant people. I've met a few boxers but not enough to really gather an opinion. But, i talk to a lot of Americans online who go to the HOF each year or several boxing cards a year etc and they back up those words.


They tell me they're approachable, laid back and very receptive towards fans presumably because they're not in the most fame filled sport. You could be the most talented boxer in a certain weight class but it could still be very unlikely that you'll be famous nationwide. So they enjoy the small level of praise they do get.


I could hazard a guess and say perhaps one of the reasons they are quite so laid back is because they get to take out life's anguish/stress on opponents and in sparring whilst many other humans who are perhaps not quite as laid back, cannot do so.


So i suppose i would say i like boxers as a general rule. I like the fact boxing allows boxers to release the build up of everyday stress. Boxing is also a great way to stay in shape. It provides a place for young kids to channel their aggressiveness in a positive way rather than in fights on the street. It teaches discipline and gives the boxer great self confidence.


It really is a good sport.
