    One is striking, another is grappling. It is incredibly difficult to compare two such different styles seeing as one has what the other lacks, and vice versa.

    wrestling is more pushing, pulling, and holding.. using momentum and wieght whereas boxing is totally off from that
    what about the fact that you throw hundreds of punches in a boxing match and you shoot maybe 10 times in a wrestling match

    Heres more evidense you may have to punch but you never end up on the ground never inless you fall but they both last (rounds to periods) the same if they last 3 rounds. But they ussally last 4 to 10 but boxers get a resting time longer then a couple seconds. Plus nobody is taking into consideration that a boxer even if they some how take more they don't work harder because they don't lift and use EVERY Mustle in there BODY!

    The object of boxing is to keep them down for 10 seconds not to give them a concussion Spider

    If you give him a concussion and he loses consciousness, you win. That's the object of the game and what you are really trying to do. If you just beat the crap out of your opponent so that he can't get up for ten seconds, but fail to actually give him a concussion, you still win. It may be a matter of semantics, but my point is that boxing encourages you to cause injury to your opponent (concussion, broken jaw, broken ribs, eye swollen shut, etc.) while wrestling discourages it.

    I'm pretty sure my wrestling coach told me to murder my oppent at least once but I see your point.

    You guys are missing the fact that boxing is hell on the legs......I've done both and they are pretty much equivilent. Just try to hit a heavy bag for 10 3 minute rounds and see what it does to your legs, your core, you shoulders and your hands.Move the bag around with your head. Push off with elbows. Bob and weave and keep moving...........Frankly, I think that some body who can go 12 rounds of boxing is in the best shape of any athlete.......everything hurts at the end.
    Bottom line, I don't know of any wrestlers that piss blood after a match or have to be hospitalized for exhaustion like Ali and frazier were after the "thrilla in Manilla"
    The Art of living is more like wrestling than dancing.
