Amateur boxing is both an Olympic and Commonwealth Games sport and it is a common fixture in most international games-it even offers its own World Championships. Boxing is supervised with a referee on the number of one- to three-minute intervals called rounds. It makes sense decided when a competitor is deemed incapable to remain by way of a referee, is disqualified for breaking a rule, resigns by throwing in the towel, or perhaps pronounced the winner or loser based on the judges' scorecards following the competition. In case both fighters gain equal scores from the judges, the fight is regarded as a draw (professional boxing). In Olympic boxing, simply because that the winner has to be declared, regarding a draw - the judges use technical criteria to choose the most deserving winner of the bout.

While folks have fought in hand-to-hand combat since before the dawn of history, the origin of boxing being an organized sport could possibly be its acceptance with the ancient Greeks being an Olympic game in BC 688. Boxing evolved from 16th- and 18th-century prizefights, largely in the uk, to the forerunner of contemporary boxing within the mid-19th century, again initially in the uk and then in the usa.
