Sort of depends on the strength of your brain connecting tissue. In my case, boxing, or more accurately getting hit, is not a good thing. Concussions come way to easy for me.
Oh I see where you're coming from. In my family, boxing gloves were a 'toy' that got renewed about every other Christmas and I still have some now but they're a little nicer now (Everlast Advanced Training).
We still have a shot to win this game!
