    Most boxers don't show signs of any long term damage until about their 20th pro fight, or so I've been told. You have a long way to go until your 20th pro fight in boxing, so I think you should give it a go and see what kind of worry it is by your 20th pro fight.

    boxing sucks, its for fags, no really.
    what do you think shadow boxing is ?
    its a dance performed by homos to show off their fisting skills, dont take that piece of crap.

    instead take bujinkan, its what ninjas used to do, or aikido, its a samurai martial art that would prevent the opponent from drawing his sword, or umbrella, basically it teaches you how to fight multiple opponents, people with weapons and teaches you how to deal with common scenarios lik wrist grabs.

    or take TKD, shotokan karate, it teaches you how to block punches and its point sparring makes sure you hit fast and first, and in a street fight thats all that matters.

    then you would take some RBSD class, Systema or Krav Maga, its what the russian and israelly military uses, very effective, even fat people who wheeze when walking can use it, you will probably be taught by one, it proves that the system is for everyone.

    but seriously, dont take gay fisting boxing, or wrestling/BJJ where its a bunch of people playing grab ass and practising sex positions, dont take crap like muay thai, because thailand is the home of tranvestites, and every MT club is actually a massage parlour with 'happy ending' untill you catch AIDS, SARS, SWINE FLU and CANCER at once. finally avoid MMA at all costs, its a mix between boxing fisting and grab ass wrestling / BJJ.

    you can always find anti grappling moves like elbowing someone in the back of the head as you fall down because a bruno look alike shot for a takedown to suck your dick, and thats not all he wants to shoot at you, so beware.

    Boxing is a superb martial art. At the very heart of it is learning to hit things. This is a crucial component of many martial arts, but one that is often sadly overlooked.

    You, sir, have taken the egg that is boxing, separated the albumen and yolk, and whisked the whites up to make a delightful face-punching meringue.
    Now, please use the yolks to make a delicious ice-cream accompaniment that we like to call body-shots.

    It's a dessert a fearful effectiveness.

    Don't get hit. Seriously.

    I love you, even though you tried to kill the Emperor.

    Look, this man has a 'Scientist' tag. That means boxing is scientifically approved.

    Boxing = Awesomeness in big gloves and hand wraps.
    Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

    it gives you character and a taste for blood.

    Not just the face, also the body. Not the balls though; these techniques are too deadly to spar.
