Is it a dangerous job? I would suppose so being between 2 fighting hulking men.
What I don't understand is why the referee's are always so scrawny in comparison to the boxers, shouldn't you at least do some strenght training to actually be able to pull them apart in cases where they don't want to?
Please go easy on me, I only saw referee's in Rocky movies and basing on that. :P
I mean it is a fun job I suppose but you take a risk too being punched out.
