Default More damage? Early knockout or 12 round punishment?

Which do you believe causes more damage to a fighter? An early, say 1st round knockout, where you are completely out cold, or taking sustained punishment throughout 12 rounds? What's you take? Aways appreciated.

yup, but early KO's will end a fighter's career faster.

Yep I'm gonna have to go with 12 rounds of punishment. All those shots to the head are way worse than a 1st round knockout.

12 rounds of punishment. This is what is currently seperating boxing and MMA. MMA looks more damaging because of huge explosive stoppages BUT that is infact safer because fighters aren't punished as much.

Boxing needs to get rid of the standing 8 count, mandatory 8 counts, bigger rings, bigger gloves etc It needs to be geared towards actually being a fist fight. This will bring around quicker and more brutal ko's BUT they will be far less punishing to the fighter.

This.

The answer to this question is obvious to everybody...

12 rds and it isn't even close. Pugilistic dementia is a real thing and far more prevalent then most realize. And it isn't even always just the late finishing fights that do it, but the continuing hits even in sparring to the head after receiving a hard blow, minor concussion on top of concussion that often goes on that makes this sport as dangerous as it is. That danger being how it doesn't show up till many years later, in the form of having a damaged, unhealable brain of an 80+ yr old, at 40 yrs and on.

12 rounds of punishment is much worse, mentally as well as physically, if you get KO'ed early you can convince yourself you got caught cold and/or the other guy got lucky, whereas getting punished for 12 rounds is hard to come back from.

12 rounds.

It is probably better to fight Tyson than to get Larry Holmes jabbed for 12 rounds.
