Cleto Reyes Boxing History

When many of us think of our favorite hobbies, we think of football, baseball, basketball and soccer. All of these sports have a full and beautiful history with various heroes and stories to listen to. But there is one sport out there with a rather deep and emotional past – Boxing.

Boxing actually originated in 688 B.C. when brought to the Olympic games.

It was during this time that it was first compiled into history. But many think it’s a good deal back date earlier than this. Some believe hand to hand sports have been used for entertainment since the beginning of time. Throughout history boxing has been adapted in different ways when it comes to the rules and ways in which the sport has been depicted. In previous years around the time before the sport’s boxing gloves were considered extremely tough, unrefined and dangerous. But as the sport has become more popular and more states that have never been allowed to put together these shows – have begun to force laws for the tolerance of sport. Many states and sanctions bodies implement rules and regulations to make sport smoother and safer for contestants.

The strongest change for this is boxing gloves.

These gloves not only make the sport look less harsh – they also strengthen the way people are trained. At that time many boxers would train with bare fists which did not allow them to fight for long. The gloves that some are called “mufflers” allow them to fight more often without doing much damage to each other. There are many names out there that are deep in boxing history and have amazing stories to tell.
