    A person can battle the culture of death using the rosary and fasting.

    If he killed deliberately, ,yes, it is a sin.  And yes, it would be murder.  If it were an accidental death, then no.

    It isn't murder, unless he intended to kill the other person. However, I doubt that God approves of two of His beloved children beating the crap out of each other as entertainment.

    It is more likely manslaughter, but it IS taking a reward for taking a life.

    You need to examine the Boxer’s heart. If he had intention to kill in his heart then yes it’s murder. If there was not intention then it was accidental.

    Also, murder is a forgivable sin. Some of the people closest to Jesus were murderers.

    Before entering  in to the contest, both of their camps have to sign an agreement as according to the Law of Boxing  of certain countries concerned , any unexpected harms that happen to both parties can not be sued to the court but only compensation would be allocated for the remedies.

    No.  Both participants are engaging in an activity that both recognize is dangerous.  As long as they comport themselves within the bounds of the sport and ACCIDENTAL death is not murder...or even assault.

    However, let's say that a boxer was knocked down fairly and the other boxer fell upon him with continued blows.  That would be outside the behavior of the sport and would be assault...and if the person died, murder.

    There in fact have been some moments in sports where participants came under legal charges for going over and above the sport in an attempt to hurt someone.

    Unless it can be proven that the intent to kill was there, then the most it can ever be is involuntary manslaughter.
