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 became a form of relief from everyday stress in 3000 BC. Since then, it has evolved as a sport in which competitors are more safe than before.

Boxing was probably invented by the Greeks around 700 B.C., but it didnรข??t become a popular sport until the 19th century. This is when boxing matches were first organized and fighters started to earn prize money.

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!
