Reason:

Convincing arguments:

Pro stated that it teaches self discipline. Con rebutted this. It's not convincing for how a sport that encourages assault would teach self discipline. People already know not to hit each other. Con also had arguments so convincing to his opponent that it caused him to forfeit. He said there were other alternatives to get fit and to get self discipline.

Conduct:

Pro forfeit all of his rounds except the 1st one. This is poor conduct.

I hope my vote does not get removed because I am trying pretty hard on this one.
