Boxing - the sport of gentlemen
It seems strange to imagine that a sport that involves punching an opponent until a stoppage, knockout or points-win was once known as the sport of gentlemen. Yet, when boxing was first codified in England in the 19th century, only the wealthiest took part and it was seen as a less violent way to settle disputes. Now, Boxing is a global sport with certain countries excelling in developing prizefighters. If you're looking to be ringside, then you should buy Boxing tickets here at StubHub. There are few sports that match the glamour, excess and thrill of watching a 12-round fight between world-class pugilists. Take a look at 2017's fight between Mayweather and McGregor, or Anthony Joshua selling out massive stadiums like Cardiff's Millenium Stadium. Boxing was once described as 'the ultimate challenge', a test of strength, stamina, style and guile. However, buying Boxing tickets should not be a challenge, get yours today here at StubHub.
There have been references to boxing as long ago as Ancient Sumeria (3000 BC), in Ancient Greece boxing was a well-developed sport and made a first appearance in the 23rd Olympiad (688 BC). Throughout the years there have been many legendary boxers that have stepped into the ring, from the days of Tom Cribb and Tom Molineaux, to legends like Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, and Joe Louis.
