Boxing

Boxing is a combat type event where two people take on each other in a contest of will, speed, strength and reflexes, and they do this with their gloved hands, throwing punches at each other.  

Both Commonwealth and Olympic Games have amateur boxing as an event. There are also World Championships.  The competition is supervised by a referee, and there are a series of one minute to three minute long rounds. The referee decides the winner when one of the contestants is considered powerless to go on with the match, or when one contestant is disqualified for breaking a rule, one of them throws the towel in, signifying he has given up.
 

History
Boxing has been an Olympic event even in BCE 688. But boxing as we see now evolved from the prize-fights that were held in the 16th- 18th-century mainly in Great Britain, which became the modern boxing events seen in the 19th century arenas in the U.S. and the U.K.

1904 saw boxing become an event at the Summer Olympics, and it has been contested every Olympic year except 1912 Stockholm Olympics; the Swedish law had a ban on boxing in their country.  Women’s boxing was included from 2012 Summer Olympics. Boxing and Wrestling are the only Olympic events that still requires that the contestants have an amateur status.

There are a series of tournaments in each boxing competition and one for each weight class, there are ten weight classes now for men, and three for women. The netric system was introduced for weights, and kilograms used from 1948.
