Not sure how palatable wheelchair boxing would be though although shouldn't be much chance of people being knocked out

Does getting a puncture count as a technical knock out?

This sounds like something Alan Partridge would pitch to the controller of BBC2....

As long as the boxer isn't in the wheelchair due to boxing I suppose it's ok .

These guys in wheelchairs who play their various sports , be in tennis or rugby are truly inspirational people - I couldn't even push mine on my own , had to get family to help and then I was a right pain to be with moaning about them crashing into the kerb etc .

Hats Off to them ! :thup:
