Boxing is one of the most popular combat sports because of its viewership and practice. But how did it all start? Boxing is a sport even in ancient times but almost get lost in history until the 18th century in England, the hub for bare-knuckle prize fighting. Its revival paved the way to the revival of the sport and of modern boxing.
James Figg is known to be the “Father of Boxing” while people like Jack Johnson, Joe Louis, Sugar Ray Robinson and Muhammad Ali also have great contributions in the history of modern era boxing. But unlike its contemporary version, modern boxing is more regulated with clear instructions and controlled by a referee.
