  Boxing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Boxing, nicknamed the "sport of kings" and also called pugilism or prizefighting (when referring to professional boxing), is a sport where two participants of similar weight attack each other with their fists in a series of one to three-minute intervals called "rounds".
Earliest evidence suggests that boxing was prevalent in North Africa during 4000 BC and the Mediterranean in 1500 BC.
The World Boxing Association even stripped a fighter of his championship in 1983 because the fight had been a 15-round bout, shortly after the rule was changed to 12 rounds.

In amateur boxing (the version of the sport found at the Olympic Games and Commonwealth Games) the primary emphasis is on landing scoring punches rather than concern with doing actual physical damage to one's opponent (though it still occurs).
Internationally, amateur boxing spread steadily throughout the first half of the 20th century, but when the first international body, the Federation Internationale de Boxe Amateur (International Amateur Boxing Federation) was formed in Paris in 1920, there were only five member nations.
In the late 19th and early 20th century, amateur boxing was encouraged in schools, universities and in the armed forces, but the champions, in the main, came from among the urban poor.

Teddy Atlas is well known for his outspoken advocacy of these issues, so it is a surprise that the position they, and their employer, ESPN, have taken on the issue of advertising tattoos.

It wasn't because the games weren't exciting: three months into the season, the Sox have had more memorable comebacks and running subplots than the 1992, 1993, and 1994 seasons combined (you may recall that Scott Cooper's back-to-back All-Star appearances were probably the most exciting things that happened during those years).
