Boxing is a sport with a long history. From what I have read on the internet, boxing came from the idea of prize fighting. Basically, two people compete to knock each other out and gain a small amount of money. It transitioned into an actual sport and has been heavily respected by people all over the world. Trivia, did you know that it is called boxing because the boxers are well in fact inside a box. It was really interesting in my honest opinion.
Boxing is a violent sport. However, there are lots of people who gained their money and fame from this combative sport. One of them is Tom Molineaux. After reading articles from the web, I learned that Tom Molineaux is an African-American boxer who fight his way to stardom in the early 19th-century. The sport of boxing started as a prizefighting game wherein two fighters compete for money. Tom is one of the well-known boxers in his time but his career ended quickly in 1815 with 5 wins, 3 losses and 1 draw.
