    Did you know that boxing is sometimes called as ‘pugilism’? And it is generally called as English boxing or Anglais boxing. This is a game of combat where two participants of similar weight fight against each other using their fists. Today Boxing is conducted in a regulated manner, normally in a series of one to three minute intervals know as ‘rounds’. The winner is chosen if any one of the player or boxer is knocked down and incapable to get up before the referee begins counts one to ten or if the opponent is deemed too tired or injured to go on. If the fist fighting never end before an agreed number of rounds, then the winner is chosen either by the judges' score cards or by the referee's decision. The ancient Greek people were the first to make a sport from fighting with fists, giving rules and even organizing tournaments with their experts. The birth of boxing was marked by its allowance in the game of Olympics as early as 688 BC. Modern boxing slowly evolved in Europe, principally in Great Britain, UK.

    In certain countries with their own fighting sports, the game is known as English Boxing and in countries like France it’s called French boxing. There are many different forms of boxing played across the globe. For instance, boxing is shown in Sumerian relief arts during the 3rd Millennium B.C, while an ancient Egyptian relief at Thebes; it depicts the spectators with fist fighters, both arts depict bare fisted contests. In the year 1927 an archaeologist, Dr E.A Speiser discovered a stone tablet in Iraq showing two men gearing up for a fight, the stone is believed to be at least 7,000 years old. Boxing or Fist fighting is also described in various ancient Indian texts such as the Vedas, Mahabarata and Ramayana, as well as during the excavations made in Harappa and Mohenjadaro. The earliest confirmation for fist fighting with a kind of gloves can be found on Minoan Crete (1500 BC).

    For the game of Boxing, there are two globally recognized boxing halls of fame; they are IBHOF - International Boxing Hall of Fame and WBHF - World Boxing Hall of Fame, the IBHOF is a widely recognized boxing hall of fame.
