    Best answer: Boxing has become a popular sport for many. It's not surprisingly because it provides the best workout and challenges many of our senses and capacities. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

    One of the world's oldest, and most celebrated sports, boxing, has proven to be popular among many people, for a variety of reasons. From its emergence in ancient Greece, through early 18-century England where it was considered the "gentle" art of self defense (albeit a bare-knuckle form of defense), and an introduction of the Marquess of Queensbury rules (1866; scoring system that required gloves), boxing has continually been refined and perfected.
    In the 21st century, professional boxing attracts major sponsorship deals and makes fighters millionaires. Amateur boxing is also growing exponentially. Those looking for a challenge are attracted by the allure of the benefits to be realized. Indeed, boxing is increasing in popularity almost daily, with movies like "Million Dollar Baby" and massive pay-per-view events attracting millions of viewers.

    Boxing has become a global phenomenon with tremendous cross-over appeal. The fitness industry has latched on to the boxing popularity with box-out classes and the like. Why has boxing become immensely popular and how does one become proficient at its practice? The following article will shed some light.

  • If Tyson had not lost to Douglas, how much longer do you think he'd have been champ?

    Let's simply change one thing about history. Instead of Douglas getting up at the count of 9 of the controversial count, Douglas simply fails to get up.

    Let's simply change one thing about history. Instead of Douglas getting up at the count of 9 of the controversial count, Douglas simply fails to get up. Result: Tyson never went down, and he won by way of knockout in the 8th round and retains the title. Douglas was supposed to be a warmup fight in preparation for the already scheduled fight with Evander Holyfield. If Tuson had beaten Holyfield, he almost certainly would have had to face Foreman next. Foreman was Holyfield's first title defense, he was the number one contender, and let's face it, Tyson vs. Foreman would have been HUGE. Foreman wanted Tyson, and Tyson would never walk away from such a win lose or draw payday, let alone Don King. After that,it's a matter of anyone's guess, although I'm sure Riddick Bowe would have been in the loop before long. Actually, to change one more thing about history, Tyson is never charged with rape and can go on fighting indefinitely. How much longer do you think Tyson could have retained his titles? Would the younger and better tyson have still lost to Holyfield? Foreman? Or do you think he'd have beaten both those guys and gone on for longer?

    Best answer: Short answer: Protection and Yes

    Better ANSWER: While the above answers are all correct. I'd like to give more information as well as answer your second question. Hand Wraps are used for a variety of reasons such as protection of the knuckles, support of the wrists etc. It also adds more protection to the fragile bones in the hand. While punching the heavy bag and in light sparring some people prefer not to waste the time wrapping their hands, there is a general consensus that the added support of the wraps is safer. Which is why it is used in competitions. On a personal note, I broke my wrists in a non-combative accident and once it healed I began to use the hand wraps for added support. Eventually I used the hand wraps as a crutch instead of rehabilitating my wrists. I quit using them slowly to rebuild wrist strength and now rarely use them.

  • Southpaw vs Orthodox, who has more success against each other?

    Does anyone know the success rate these stances have against each other? It'd be interesting to know whether one has a bigger win rate or whether it's pretty even when it comes down to it.

    This question may sound a little odd, but it pertains to a fighters/athletes diet. I understand while training for a fight, a boxer must be in peak physical condition and what they eat is crucial for success. But when they arent training for a fight, do they just enjoy themselves and eat whatever? (Obviously not over induldge) but just enjoy food? Compared to a pro body builder whom is cutting/bulking each year and must have a strict nutrition lifestyle and soemtimes its so strict that they have to be antisocial at times.

  • Which boxer would you rather watch lomachenko, pacquiao or hatton?

    Best answer: Pacman was a phenom, 8 division world champion, yes in todays bloated divisions with even more bloated abc titles, but 8 abc titles is impressive, almost as impressive as what Henry Armstrong did.
    Lomo seems more skillful though, deep amateur pedigree.
    Hatton was a good lightwelterweight that's it.

    Best answer: Larry Holmes was far more skilled than people give him credit for... because he fought in an era with a lot of scrubs, but that wasn't Holmes fault... Holmes merely beat them up.

    Best answer: Larry Holmes was far more skilled than people give him credit for... because he fought in an era with a lot of scrubs, but that wasn't Holmes fault... Holmes merely beat them up. Lyle, yes, extremely strong guy but there's more to boxing than being strong, and Holmes would've and could've given Lyle a lesson on the finer techniques of boxing. I'm not necessarily a Holmes fan but, c'mon, ya gotta recognize how good, talented and methodical he really was.

  • Do you think lomachenko is/will be number 1 p4p boxer?

    Best answer: Lomachenko is definitely number p4p. He made Nicolas Walters quit after easily dominating him. He also knocked out Rigo in a fight many thought he would lose. I rarely follow the smaller weights but he earned my respect as a fan. I'll make sure to watch every fight of his.

  • Does throwing more punches at full speed increase hand speed or is it genetics?

    Best answer: Genetics are very important but knowing the correct fundamentals and throwing punches correctly is the foundation for everything in boxing. Throwing blazing fast useless punches without using leg, hip and shoulder rotation makes punches near useless.
