SAMPLE ANSWER:

Nowadays, it is quite common in sports like rugby and football involving violent contact between players and leading to injury. Other sports, like boxing and wrestling, in particular, have the deliberate intention of hurting the opponent. It is highly debatable whether this is acceptable in modern society when at all other times we try to emphasise co-operation and team spirit, training people not to be aggressive and not to resort to violence when in conflict with others.

Also dangerous sports like boxing and wrestling, even in a controlled and institutionalised form, are highly disturbing. Everyone should live in a violence-free society. For everyone, to learn to avoid such behaviour, it is preferable if we never see it.

However, it should be borne in mind that cruelty is inherent in society and banning violent sports like boxing will not alter this. On the contrary, institutionalising and controlling violence in boxing clubs can help change this. Boys, who would otherwise be part of street riots can be taught to direct their energies positively. In turn, they can be trained to be better members of society. Besides, organised sports follow elaborate rules, and medical facilities are always on hand; so, no one should be seriously hurt in a fair and peaceful game.

But in my opinion, the prohibition of violent sports is necessary for the well being of society.
