A boxing match is a controlled environment. a street fight is untamed and anything can happen. I am not a fan of boxing, nor will I be a fan.

As far as wrestling goes........................... it stinks, and is televised as entertainment.

Even though Wrestling has recently admitted what we all knew --- that it's not a real sport, that it's all staged --  wrestlers do get hurt, seriously sometimes. 

Wrestlers are like stunt men.

While the violence is rehearsed, serious injury still results.

If it is fake, how do they get seriously hurt?

As I said, they're like stuntmen.  When you see a car crash in a movie, it's staged.  But on the set, people do get hurt from time to time.

Wrestlers perform stunts in a sense.  One wrestler climbs the ropes, jumps off to land on another.  Even though they land in such a way as to make it look like they've crushed their opponent while in reality missing them, they still get bruised on the landing.  Some have broken bones.  One wrestler a few years ago died performing a "stunt."

Other stunts include tossing themselves out of the ring, lifting up an opponent and throwing him down, etc.  Again, it's all rehearsed, but it still requires exertion, which can result in injury.
