There are 2 different Olympic styles of wrestling. The first is Freestyle wrestling. The second is Greco-Roman wrestling. There is also Folkstyle wrestling, which is the style that American High Schools compete in. There is an altered version of folkstyle called College wrestling, which is the style that American colleges and universities compete in. Freestyle involves moves used on and by both the upper and lower body, while Greco-Roman wrestling limits the wrestlers to only upper body moves, mainly throws.

There's evidence that Boxing existed long ago, circa 1500-3000 B.C but it was not called "boxing" and did not have a name.It wasnt until the 16th century England that it was revitalised and given the name "boxing" and also "bare knuckle boxing" and "prizefighter" by an English bare knuckle boxer named John Chambers.Then the English gave it rules (those rules still stand today) Those rules are "The Marquess of Queensbury rules" and were also created there. So the English get the credit for inventing "Modern Boxing" that we all know today.The first ever documented boxing match was in 16th century in England.Boxing was actually an ancient game created by the Greeks. It was first invented in the Olympic Games. Boxing was used as a training for soldiers in war. They competed in the games, so they could be in shape for their battles in war.Boxing has obviously evolved a great deal since the Olympic games, and is now a sport many fans enjoy from all across the globe!
