Boxing

Boxing is a combat sport in which two people, usually wearing protective gloves, throw punches at each other for a predetermined set of time in a ring. It’s both an Olympic and Commonwealth Games sport and is a common fixture in most international games—it also has its own World Championships. While humans have fought in hand-to-hand combat since before the dawn of history, boxing as an organised sport may have its origin in the ancient Greeks as an Olympic game in 688 BC.
