Boxing is considered to be a manly game, though modern day women have joined the wagon as well. The philosophy of boxing tends to bring out courage from within you, and you do away with your fears. You become mentally strong, and your mind becomes more calculative and you learn to take the world in your stride. Though, the philosophy is quiet simple, and that is to thrash your opponent. But it requires you to be on top of your physical health, be agile, and overall have a strong muscular body.

Rules / Rulesets

Initially boxers believed that rules were for fools, and there were no different weight divisions, or round limits, and with no referee it was a free for all, and chaotic. Then, in1867 ‘Marquess of Queensberry rules’ were drafted to bring some sanity to the sport. Usually you can expect a boxing match to be of 3 to 12 rounds with each round duration of 3 minutes. And after each round, boxers are given breather for a minute, during which time the boxers go to their assigned corners for words of advice from their trainers, and to freshen themselves. There are up to three judges typically who count the scores based on the punches the boxers deliver. And at the end of all the rounds, if there are no knockouts, or disruption of play, the highest scoring player is declared as the winner.

The boxing culture has been evolved with the advent to time, and you should follow some basic principles including:

  1. A referee is given the task to control the proceedings, and lookout for fouls, knockouts, and safety of the boxers. And, you are expected to obey the referee.
  2. It is a game not a war, and is played in a sporting spirit.
