    • Abstract:
      Boxing, which is naked aggression, is the most elementally masculine of sports. Masculine aggression has its sexual component, the conquest of women. Boxing is an organized ritual that violates taboo. There is little irony in Mike Tyson's rape conviction: he was a man who delighted in flaunting taboos.
