Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

I tried to bang once, but they wouldn't let me. I kept asking to bang, but they kept saying no. Eventually I got sick of being told no, so I attempted to bang on my own. It wasn't much fun and I began to get a clearer picture of why they might not let me bang. I'm not sure if you have ever experienced a proper bang, but mang, when a bang starts banging, that bang is banging.
