On Professional Boxing:
Should a boxer that intentionally twists his fist at the end of a punch for the purpose of:
1. Cutting the face.
2. Making a cut on the face, such as near the eye bigger and worse.
3. Causing scars, which are harder and therefore easier cut, to open up anew.
Should a boxer like that be allowed to win the match? I say no! I say that isn't what boxing is supposed to be about. To me boxing is about, speed, footwork, attack and yes knock out. It isn't about tearing someone face up so that it scars over and is therefore more likely to bleed in the next fight, again because the scar tissue is harder.
I remember decades ago watching a boxer avoid a cut eye on his opponent out of sport?
