As a high school student I boxed in the Golden Gloves and enjoyed the sport. I was always a fan of the "sweet science". I never had a close relationship with my father but we did watch the Gillette Friday Night Fights together. Those are the best memories that I have with him. I have never been a fan of any of the MMA type fights, it just reminds me too much of human pit bull fights. I realize there is a great deal of still and training but not my cup of tea.
Feel the same way. Boxed as a youngster and am still a great fan today. I do appreciate MMA and do watch selected bouts, but to me, the "sweet science " is sweeter.
