Would you allow boxing in prisons

Boxing should be taught in prisons in England and Wales in an effort to improve discipline and boost education, an independent expert has said. A report for the Ministry of Justice said ministers should consider allowing combat sports - with the current ban a "missed opportunity" to cut offending. Personally I am not bothered either way but I doubt if whatever they do it can make things any worse than it is in our prisons right now.

Boxing in prisons?

I wouldn't allow boxing at all - it should be banned.

This has been raised before and I have no doubt that there will be some strong views posted shortly;-)

The worst paedophiles should have the poo beaten out of them, if it were in the boxing ring it could be legal.

Agree with Pine Man. I think that already happens Matt.
