History of Boxing

Boxing has been around as long as humans themselves and can be considered to be the purest combat sport.

Humans have settled disputes in fist fights since time immemorial. Modern-day Boxing, however, originated in Great Britain between the 16th and 18th Centuries, when prizefights were popular and common.

That type of Boxing evolved into the modern variant of gloved Boxing in the mid-1800s.

The United States was also one of the places where modern Boxing originated possibly brought over by British immigrants.

Boxing Equipment

The sport's intrinsically aggressive nature can cause a large number of injuries, some minor, some very major.

This is why precautions are necessary to protect the Boxer's bodies. Modern Boxing equipment includes hand and wrist wraps, gloves and mouthpieces.

The gloves have two purposes: protecting the Boxer's hands and decreasing the force of the blows.

The purpose of the hand and wrist wraps is to secure the bones in the Boxer's hands and wrists, while the mouthpiece protects the teeth and tongue and cushions the jaw, lowering the chance of a knockout.

Training equipment is much more extensive and includes jump ropes and punch bags, and various weight training equipment, such as barbells, dumbbells and kettlebells.
