    Cavemen? A bit strong maybe (and who ever said cavemen were actually boxing?)
    :smile2:
    I believe most of the time they do wear gloves. Still, it must hurt a lot:

    Why do animals fight? to protect their family or property. Humans fight for fun and blood sport, so caveman is a suitable term.

    There is lot of violence in primate society (cf Chimpanzee and Apes) and most of them are about... gaining power and favour of females!

    However the population density of the first hunter-gathered societies (the so-called "cavemen") was probably so low that we can safely consider that violence was probably avoid at any cost. There is no evidence showing that Neanderthal or Cro-Magnon had violent behaviour :celebrate:

    I would bet that violent "sportive" activity appear much later (Upper Paleolithic? Neolithic?) with the infamous Homo sapiens :cool:

    I don't believe most contact sports or sports-people are violent. They are controlled (the fighters control themselves). It's a sport and fitness and technique play a big part. Anybody who "loses the plot" and just lashes out violently in an uncontrolled manner is likely to be beaten (with the odd exception, perhaps).
