An influential Jesuit magazine close to the Vatican condemned pro boxing as a "legalized form of attempted murder."

The article in Civilta Cattolica, titled "The Immorality of Professional Boxing," compared the sport to the bloody gladiator contests in ancient Rome. It also criticized the business side of boxing as being equally ruthless.

The magazine provided advance copies of the article, which will appear Saturday.

Boxing is a "legalized form of attempted murder, in the short or in the long run," the magazine said. It also noted that fighters who don't die in the ring often suffer long-term physical and psychological injuries.

Well, it is a sport where a lack of unconsciousness and blood is a bad thing...
