Fighting with the fists for sport and spectacle has been practiced since sports began. The word “boxing” was first used in England in the 18th century to distinguish between fighting to settle disputes and fight under agreed upon rules for sport. It is now used to describe a sport in which 2 contestants (boxers) wearing padded gloves face each other in a “ring” and fight an agreed upon number of “rounds” under recognized rules.
