"Under the whole sport plan, the Amateur Boxing Association of England will receive £5.8 million to drive up participation"

Why is the government trying to increase participation in amateur boxing? To state the obvious boxing is frequently extremely violent both at professional and amateur levels. It involves repeated full force blows to the head and people being knocked unconscious. Anyone can see how violent boxing is at amateur levels by attending an amateur boxing event. On many occasions it involves young people getting their lights punched out. Is this what is deemed beneficial by the government for young people in "deprived and inner-city areas"?
