…8, 9, 10 Ding, Ding, Ding

The moment when you hit the ground hard. Don’t know what happened. Then all you hear is, “It’s over, It’s all over”. “We have a new heavyweight champion of the world.” You look to your side, you see your coaches upset. Then you look to your other side and see everyone looking upset, and saying “What just happened.” You feel something coming down your face. You see the drips of it, then you notice that it was blood. After that you realize that you lost the biggest game of your life.. When that happens your face gets red and you don’t know what to do.


From that moment your life flashed before your eyes, then……..Bang! You wake up in the hospital, dont know whats going on. Your family looking all worried and upset. There is an x-ray of your head on the wall. Then you just freeze, the only thing that you are doing is asking yourself this, “Was this the right choice.”


Boxing, one of the greatest sport of all time. But it could be one of the most life threatening things that you can do with your life. There is a lot of pros and cons of boxing. If you are a good boxer, you can get money and be famous. But the knockouts and hits could be life threatening. Some people might say that it is worth it, but others might say why take the risk.


Musa Saeed has lost  his cousin from boxing. His cousin took the risk of boxing. He died from injuries suffered during his first professional fight. I asked Musa, “Is boxing dangerous in your opinion?” He responded by saying,”Yes because you are putting you life on the line.”


Since the 1900 about 10 people per year died from boxing. According to https://www.livestrong.com/article/507149-boxing-and-brain-damage-statistics/. Many people die from boxing and nothing is being done about it. I am not trying to hate on boxing I am just stating the clear facts. I also asked Musa, “ If you were good in boxing would you take the risk of playing pro boxing?” He replied, “ Yes, I would take the risk of boxing, but I would play a couple of games then take the money and leave.”



Mohamad Beydoun a boxer himself, in Unis middle schools, was asked some questions about boxing. I asked Mohamad Beydoun, “ Is boxing dangerous in your opinion?” He replied, “ Yes, boxing is dangerous because your body isn’t made for it.” The American Association of Neurological Surgeons says that 90% of boxers will have sustained a brain injury by the end of their careers.

If you’re a boxer and you love boxing, and you are willing to take the risk of boxing. Just ask yourself is there a chance of me being in the hospital, knowing that my life is over from one stupid decision?

  1. Boxing in my opinion is a fun entertaining sport. Boxing is one of the most dangerous sports. People train there whole life but you never know when your opponent will deliver that jaw breaking punch and put you in the hospital. But there are a lot of famous boxers like Tyron Woodley, Conor McGregor, and Floyed Mayweather. I would like to be a pro boxer and be in UFC. Your living life on the edge and it can pay off when you when the title but it can go down hill when you get knocked out or injured.

  2. In this article I learned that boxing is really dangerous and could kill many people or cause them brain injuries, Mussa Saeed said that his cousin died from boxing and that is something we should take into consideration when we think about boxing or going into a fight with someone. Some boxers end up killed an Most of them or should I say all of them end up in hospitals it is really not something people should look up to doing in the future as a career or job. However some people could take these things into consideration about being a boxer because some peoples body could handle it.

  3. This article is interesting because it makes me think that I am a new world heavyweight champion. A person many people know is Muhammed Ali a hall of famer. He died last year 2016 April 3 in Arizona.

  4. I really liked this article, it grabbed my attention right away. I really like boxing its actually one of my favorite sports its fun to play but this is a very dangerous sport. even if you have been training all your life or multiple years this is still very dangerous, professional players always end up in hospitals. in my boxing class this one kid named hamza went to his first boxing match and died because of a severe head injury.
