Mom Dies After Entering Toughman Boxing Contest for Fun For those of you who aren't familiar with this (and neither was I until I saw the news report on this woman this morning) ... these amatuer boxing "contests" allow untrained boxers who pay an entry fee to compete for cash prizes and trophies. Winners then can move on from these local comps (like this one in Florida) to national competitions. Participants also sign a waiver releasing Toughman from any liability. And there have been 4 deaths in 9 months!) "Boxing is an inherently dangerous sport. Toughman has long been known to be the safest form of fighting event." huh?? what??? are you as confused as I am here??? if boxing is dangerous is it less or more dangerous when untrained individuals enter the ring?? Check out the story and post your comments!
