  2. Boxing for Kids: Is This a Sport You Should Encourage Your Children to Try?

    Few sports, save for the more recently developed MMA and UFC leagues, offer the same level of thrill and tension for spectators as boxing. From the moment the first bell rings to signal the start of the match to the last round, boxing is all about technical skill, power, and stamina. Everything from the way a boxer moves his or her feet tothe way they defend and throw punches requires carefulpractice and endless hours of conditioning at the gym. It's a tough sport, no doubt, but one that appeals to individuals who love a personal challenge and want to put their skills to the test in a big way.

    Everyone must start somewhere, though, and this raises a question that more and more parents ask every year: is boxing appropriate for my child?

  4. A Quick Guide to the Many Weight Classes in Boxing

    29th December 2017. The noble sport of boxing has a long and storied history, with its origins stretching back in time many years. Over time after its inception as a sanctioned sport, many parts of the pursuit have changed. Fighting bare-knuckled faded away with the introduction of gloves, rounds became more standardised, and scoring became a more integral part of the competition. While some of these rules have changed, the basic concept ? two men climbing into the ring to square off in a fair fight ? has remained the same.

Boxing has also been dominated by an "old guard" of veteran fighters for some time now. Today that is changing, as new talents such as Anthony Joshua continue to rise, endure, and even win some pretty harrowing fights. For the uninitiated, though, what do you need to know about
