Boxing - Then and Now
Boxing is a popular sport all over the world, particularly in North America, having a good infrastructure by means of various boxing organizations. Its popularity continues to grow day by day.
Boxing has along lineage historians have traced it as far back as 4000 BC to the empires of Rome and Greece. Boxing known by other name back then, seems to have been a much rougher and brutal game than now.
Evidence shows that these ancient civilizations encouraged the boxing participants to fight each other using fists and metal spikes. It is believed that these battles often continued until one of the competitors was declared dead. These days boxing is much safer, with strict regulations in place to protect the boxer.
Gloves are required for both amateurs and professionals. There are no longer any spikes used, and scores are kept by computer to determine the winners. Boxers wear special head-gear for their protection as well. In actuality, even though regulated, boxing is one of the few hand-to-hand sports still in existence.
Most boxing matches place together competitors that are within the same level of experience and strength. Boxers are trained in the skilled of combat and this makes a boxing match both fun and exciting to watch as two people battle it out to win the honor of taking home the trophy.
Boxing became popular in North America in the middle of the 19th century. As soon as Americans saw this sport its popularity sky-rocketed. During International competitions, the Americans generally win matches and score the most knockouts.
Men aren't the only competitors in the boxing ring. Women are yet to box in the Olympics, but that day shouldn't be far away. They have become adept and experienced competitors.
In most cases professional boxers began as amateurs. Some well known names who have engaged in this sport are George Forman, Leon Spinks, Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, Floyd Patterson and Oscar de la Hoya.
There are some differences between amateur and professional boxing matches. The pros fight for anywhere from four to fifteen rounds, with the average being twelve. Amateur matches consist of three rounds.
Judges decide who wins the match, by totaling the points of each fighter. Once they arrive at the score, they announce the winner. If someone is knocked out, it's a win for the one who threw the final punch. If the person hit can get up before ten seconds have passed, they will usually keep fighting.
People of all ages can participate in the sport of boxing. Many people learn to box so that they have a unique source of exercise, and can work off the stresses and worries of everyday life.
Boxing continues to be a popular sport to watch, especially by men, who eagerly watch the ring from the safety of their armchairs.
