"A boxer's victory is gained in blood."
- Ancient Greek inscription, first century B.C.E.
Boxing, sometimes called pugilism or prizefighting, is a sport in which players wear padded gloves and attack and defend themselves using their fists.
Each match, called a bout, has three to twelve rounds of three minutes each. A player wins by scoring a predetermined number of points or by rendering his opponent unable to continue.
Boxing became an Olympic sport in the year 688 B.C.E., but its origins are much earlier. Carvings up to 5,000 years old from Sumeria and Egypt feature boxers.
Gloves were in use by at least 1500 B.C.E. - for practice rounds, at least, even if not used in actual competitions.

During the age of film, boxing took popular culture by storm. Matches featuring legendary greats like Muhamad Ali were televised, and fictional characters like Rocky Balboa were immortalized on film.
Cartoon characters often donned gloves and took to the ring, sometimes symbolizing facing a great challenge.
