Guns to Gloves

I found this to be really amazing.

Guns to Gloves

"Humans have been fighting since Jesus walk this earth. That's a fact. There's certain people - that's how they're wired. They're gonna fight no matter what I do. Only difference is, with me, they're fighting in a yard with gloves, a referee, and regulations.

"After his friend was shot on Christmas Eve in 2013, Chris Wilmore — known as Scarface — began recruiting for his backyard fight club, as a way to encourage people to settle disputes with gloves, not guns."

I'm sure there more to the story and it's not entirely an altruistic pursuit. But none-the-less I think the idea of organized fighting as a means for conflict resolution makes a lot of sense.
