There are two real reasons:
A) Americans are becoming lazier, fatter, and more cowardly every minute, and
B) It is virtually impossible to find a good amatuer boxing program in our pussified culture.
Your second point is a good one. How you gonna' have boxing in school when Mothers against drunk driving have taken over. We're all supposed to live in a hermetically sealed bubble now. Didn't you get the memo? It's for the children's sake so how can you argue?
The first? I dunno about cowardly. Not hard at all to find a nice brawl most places if you go in running your mouth. If you really believe that, pick a port (we have a **** ton of them in this country), go to one of the bars down by the docks and try your luck. Then you can post the results on your facey-space...
