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 century, 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.

Modern Boxing involves three or four rounds in which two opponents try to score as many points as possible by delivering clean blows. A Boxing match ends when one of the boxers is knocked out, resigns, is deemed unable to continue the fight by a Judge, or when the time is up. If the time runs out and both competitors are still in the game, the winner is decided by adding up the points they have scored. Boxers are divided into different weight classes, which each have their own rankings.

Boxing Equipment

The sports intrinsically aggressive nature can cause a large number of injuries, some minor, some very major. This is why precautions are necessary to protect the Boxers bodies. Modern Boxing equipment includes hand and wrist wraps, gloves and mouthpieces.

The gloves have two purposes: protecting the Boxers hands and decreasing the force of the blows. The purpose of the hand and wrist wraps is to secure the bones in the Boxers 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 kettle bells.
