To address the original poster on being punched in the face I've done it, received it and done it in the ring the worst I received was in the ring.
I was so tired after boxing so many different opponents I couldn't keep my hands up to defend myself or move fast enough to get out the way it hurt big time.
Weird experience being in a controlled environment but must be horrific in a life or death situation
