    i don't think you are looking at enough aspects. Look how much longer a boxing match can be compared to a wrestling match. Definitely taking a punch is much touger than being slammed and halfed. The way the rules are a slam can't be but so painful/malicious. A punch there are no exceptions except low blows. I don't look at it as ducking v. sprawling, i look at it as not getting hit, and not being taken down by a leg attack. When you look at it like that, it is much harder to avoid a punch than to avoid a takedown. many more options.

    2 awesome and incredibly difficult sports that require a great deal of training and mental toughness.

    This may be a little off the intent of the thread, but there is one big difference that should be considered: in boxing, the object is to give your opponent a concussion and render him unconscious; in wrestling, the object is to hold your opponent's shoulders to the mat and any tactics which might cause inury are illegal.

    In folkstyle.... In Greco-Roman and Freestyle there are high amplitude throws and slams.

    Statistically, wrestling is more effective than boxing in MMA and Vale Tudo fighting. This is history!

    Good point.

    But another point to be made, is that in greco and FS, those big throws at the high level are pretty few and far between. In boxing you WILL get hit.... lots.

    easier to throw one punch then to shoot one double leg
    the act of ducking is less tiring then sprawling

    wrestling is more pushing, pulling, and holding.. using momentum and wieght whereas boxing is totally off from that

    Very good points, wrestling is more exhausting than boxing, I'd say it takes more energy to shoot the legs than shoot a jab, on the other hand, boxing is more brutal because, as Spider said, they are trying to concuss each other. Wrestlers must have good footwork, motion and be able to slip the jab. If they lack these skills they end up out on the end of the opponents jab. Not a good place to be.
