Well, in baseball... you've got a bunch of fat guys leaning on each other and yelling things.
In basketball, it looks a little more like fighting. A punch occasionally connects, though it's usually only a cheap shot because 37 guys jump in when two guys are squared off.
In hockey, they actually fight. Guys square up, land punches... and they do it on skates.
