    Icon7 Boxing and Kickboxing

    Is Kickboxing popular in your region/country?
    I think that Boxing should be renamed to "Classical Boxing" for differentiation with Kickboxing.

    And we should rename football 'English Football' to differentiate it from American Football.

    Or y'know, just rely on the fact they already have different names.


    But to answer your question, kicking people in the face is a Saturday night staple in many towns over here

    This but unironically.

    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    Love kickboxing. Seems crazy to me that K1 never took off given the popularity of Boxing around the world. Kickboxing should have been a huge success and guys like Andy Hug, Ernesto Hoost, Peter Aerts, Jerome Le Banner, Remy Bonjasky, Badr Hari and prime Ubereem should have been huge stars worldwide but it's still very much a niche sport. It almost feels like we missed out on a golden era popularity wise, there were so many top potential Kickboxing stars in the late 90s to mid/late-2000's.

    The official name of FIFA Football is "Association Football". I think that "Association Football" should be changed to "Soccer Football".

    Soccer is already shortform for Association Football. You know, from the days when both Rugger (Rugby) and Soccer were just called Football. And no one calls Association Football FIFA Football. Well... maybe the sort of people who call Australian Football AFL.

    Since we are doing this, why not call Kickboxing Punch and Kick? Boxing has nothing to do with this.

    For unification of Boxing organisations including AIBA, Kickboxing could play an important role.
    And "Soccer Football" is better than "Association Football" because "Soccer" is very well known name.

    Futsal should leave FIFA for becoming another popular indoor sport...

    Is there any subject you actually have any knowledge about?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
