If two students are fighting and others are cheering how to prolong/prevent that both boys become separated by school staff right off?

In order to let them settle it between them because both boys want it.

    Sometimes, the spectators are the ones who have pressured reluctant kids into fighting.  Also, you can't expect the staff to stand by and allow students to get hurt.  If they always turned a blind eye to fights, the kids would eventually become adults who settle all of their differences with violence.  This, in turn, would lead to long prison sentences for the combatants.  As such, the job of the school staff and parents is to encourage children to work out their conflicts by talking it out between them.

    There are reasons boys would challenge one another to meet at a place other than school, where no teachers will be present.

    If the boys want to duke it out, that's what should happen.

    But IMO, physical fights don't settle a damned thing.
