Are boxers' fists classed as lethal weapons?

Question

If a professional boxer gets into a street fight, I heard his sentence would be worse because his fists are classed as a lethal weapon. Is this true?

Answer

** Definitive **
Name: Ricky, Hackney
Qualification: Former kick-boxer
Answer: When I used to do kick-boxing, my Sensei was out with his wife and he got into a fight with someone who was picking on his wife. He beat three of them up and in court, he got done for using a lethal weapon – his fists.
