Boxing is a popular sport in which opponents throw punches from their fisted gloves, pitting their striking skills, strength, and agility against each other from the confines of a roped off boxing ring. Supervised by a referee, the result is decided when an opponent is considered incapable of continuing. Professional boxing emerged in the early 20th Century when it became a legitimate sport, and since then it has risen in popularity and it is now both an Olympic and Commonwealth Games sport, as well as having its own World Championships. There have been many famous boxers throughout history, including Mike Tyson, Muhammad Ali, Carl Frampton, and more. Today, boxing is a seen as a great new way to get fit, lose weight, or tone up.
There are so many benefits in adding boxing to your fitness regime. It isn’t about learning to fight in a ring or ever having to go up against an opponent. Rather, it is about learning the skills of strength and agility and applying these to an effective workout that will yield great results.
