Team Boxing

Just like regular boxing except two teams of eleven boxers fighting as a group all at once

The ring would probably be about the size of an ice hockey rink. Each team would come out from their side when the bell rang and brawl for 3 minutes until the bell rang again, at which time they'd go back to their corners to rest for the next round.

The group strategies that would be employed could be very interesting. Yes, you could double up on a guy, but that leaves a team member of yours fighting two guys from the other side.

You obviously couldn't have 11 refs in the ring so some kind of electronic method of stopping a boxer would have to be used, a shock collar or something a-la Star Trek. When a guy's had enough, the team of refs on the side hit the other boxer's button as a signal for him to stop. The boxer that's down gets one as well telling him to stay down until he's looked at and deemed ok to go on fighting.

This would go on for 3 to 12 rounds or until the last man is standing.

       So it's like hurling, only without weapons.

       So... ice hockey with more guys and without the sticks.

       Ice hockey without the ice.   

       Or the hockey.

       Just last night, someone proposed this as an actual idea. Admittedly it was with some foam rubber and the "chukkas" were 30 min in length.   

       Change the title to "Fart Club" and I will call you Cornelius....

       Well, they did it. Don't know if they got the idea from here or not, but 5 years later it's being done. See link.   

       I'd be surprised if they didn't get the idea from here. Boxing's been around since 688 bc, team sports have been around for about the same amount of time, 5 years after putting the two together is suggested here somebody else just happens to come up with it? Eh, maybe, but I doubt it.

       I think it would be confusing and they'd block the action.
