Looking for genuine boxing memorabilia?, you’ve come to the right place?
Fierce fighting, inflated egos and sell-out stadiums. There’s nothing quite like boxing. It attracts millions of spectators each year worldwide. As a sport it is thought to have originated in ancient Greece, where it was a popular fixture at the Olympic Games.
Modern boxing however is a far cry from the bare-fisted battles of the ancient Greeks. Rugged, exhilarating yet polished and slick, boxing is now a multi-million-pound global industry. Now hotly anticipated fights take place in glamorous locations all over the world – from Las Vegas, Madison Square Gardens and the Yankee Stadium in New York to Wembley and Old Trafford. Various disciplines come under the boxing umbrella – from WBA and WBC to UFC, which is dominated by MMA (Mixed Martial Arts). Within boxing itself there are two categories, amateur and professional. There are fourteen weight classes, from pin weight and flyweight to heavyweight and super heavyweight.
Boxing Gloves History
Fighters in ancient Greece used to wrap their hands in leather bands for protection. Early gloves are depicted in Minoan Crete wall paintings from 1500BC. The oldest examples ever discovered are Roman, circa 120AD. The popularity in one of the world’s oldest sports accelerated in Britain in the 17th century, but it wasn’t until the 18th century that bare knuckle fighter Jack Broughton introduced the first rules (Broughton’s Law) which saw the first modern gloves which were used for practice only. In 1867 they were made mandatory when the Marquess of Queensbury Rules were adopted, although they were actually written by John Graham Chambers, a Welsh sportsman. The basic design of boxing gloves haven’t changed over the years with horsehair and foam being used for padding. While the leather laces have been replaced by a touch closing, the idea of a heavily padded glove has stayed the same. Some of the most expensive items of boxing memorabilia are coveted signed boxing gloves from some of the world’s biggest stars like Mohammed Ali.
Boxing has birthed many legends over the years – from the iconic Ali to doggedly determined Frank Bruno and Evander Holifield. Unforgettable moments in the ring include Joe Frazier and Ali’s fifteen-round fight which saw the champ defeated for the first time Also the historic match when undefeated, undisputed heavyweight Mike Tyson was beaten in a knockout by underdog Buster Douglas. Its wide appeal draws fans from all over the world, and boxers themselves hail from Russia, Thailand, America and the UK. As a sport it is accessible compared with others which require large amounts of funding and specialist equipment – therefore champions come from a variety of backgrounds.
