    Girls boxing?! We never do this in Sri Lanka. I am sure they can play the more "girlish" games like net-ball, badminton, etc and learn to be good house-wives and mothers.

    Why boxing for girls. Karate is OK. Less dangerous and more beneficial.

    My deepest sympathies to the family. This shows how risky life could be. Step on to the road, get in a vehicle, field of sport or anywhere for that matter.

    Its tragic and our thoughts are with thr loved ones. Boxing is a dangerous sport. Was the girl in good physical condition to engage in a fight? Was there enough supervision and precautions at the venue? A thorough investigation is required to prevent similar occurrences.
