I dont' really get into boxing too much. There have been far too many deaths in that sport for me to appreciate it. The boxing community refuses to acknowledge that brain damage is cumulative. I know more rich boxing promoters than rich fighters.
However, boxing does have an impact in MMA and I appreciate the training it provides. Learning how not to get punched is always a good skill to have.
