Boxing or fighting with fists comes naturally to people; the ancient Greeks were the first to make a sport of it; by creating some rules and staging tournaments with combatants. The birth hour of boxing as a sport may mark its allowance as an Olympic game as early as 688 BCE. Modern boxing evolved in Europe, particularly Great Britain with the introduction of the Marquess of Queensbury Rules in 1867, which have been the general rules governing boxing ever since. Although there are only four basic punches, the "sweet - science" of boxing's effectiveness is in its simplicity.
