    noone here said that watching boxing or any sort of fight is a turnon. it is for me and the hottest thing i can imagine would be get my hands on a boxer straight out of the ring, nice and sweaty, maybe a bit bloody and sore. i guess i am a pervert!

    Just keep your hands up at all times and you'll be fine. icon_razz.gif

    Seriously, though, if it's somebody's occupation, why not? I'd be more worried about dating a butcher to be honest. (Except Sam from the Brady Bunch. Hands off, ladies, he's all mine...)

    This is an old thread so somebody probably already raised it, but serious dating for some could be masked not by fear of what he could do to you, but the fear of the occupational hazards he might suffer himself in the squared circle.

    There's always the trepidation that your partner might come home one day bloodied and bandaged, eyes the size of small grapefruits, his nose relocated toward one side of his face, wheezing from his tenderized ribs, maybe not at all clear about where he was last Friday, or where he is now, maybe needing some assistance to suck soup through a straw until his jaw gets re-wired, mumbling incoherently like Leon Spinks, insisting on a rematch. And I'm sorry, but being the gay Talia Shire is just not what many guys feel cut out to be.

    I'd imagine it takes a person who's into a boxer for EVERYTHING OTHER THAN the physique and the pugilism, because once said boxer's career is through, the partner may have a completely different physical specimen in his arms.

    I don't understand why boxing is even considered a sport or the appeal of even watching it, with the exception of the kind where they keep teasing you....where it looks like they keep hugging each other while on the ground and it looks like they are about to kiss each other...but they never do. Such a tease. icon_wink.gif I notice that sometimes on the tv's when I'm at the gym.

    I probably feel this way because I grew up in a family that did not believe in dealing with things through violence. I think that there have been too many doctors in my family to appreciate boxing.

    Actually taking the time to watch people hit each other... I don't get it. I don't have a lot of respect for boxing. Nor would I want to watch a sport where people fight to the death.

    SoDakGuy saidI'm not on the DL w/ the boxers. They usually find out I'm gay after knowing me for awhile. I never hide it, but training is more important than me saying I'm gay.




    Show up wearing one of the outfits in your pics and there will be no need to tell them you're gay icon_lol.gif

    I would love to date a boxer. They tend to be very dedicated, stand-up guys who aren't afraid of confrontation, are into camaraderie, and will stand up for themselves or others who need it. Plus, the art of boxing is beautiful.. the movement, the form, the technique. I love to watch boxers train. They have focus, strength, confidence.

    Heck, I'm a boxer. Someone wanna date me? ;-)

    SoDakGuy saidAll right, ever since I started boxing four years ago, whenever I mention a guy here in Minneapolis I'm an amateur boxer, most of them cringe and become disinterested.

    I train to fight in a ring. I know the difference between getting into a fight in a ring and also using it when I got assaulted - twice. I know not to use my skills in the relationship and I won't.

    So, would you date a guy who is a boxer? Why or why not?


    I would...though I'd have to admit, I'd be a little uneasy about it at first.
