Sport History

The sport of Boxing has an incredible history dating back to the days beyond the Roman Empire in 3000 BC.  Basic issues governing the sport were finally solved when in 1867, John Sholto Douglas, the 9th Marquis of Queensbury, established a set of boxing rules.  The “Queensbury Rules” and the principle of fighting with padded gloves instead of bare fists marked the beginning of modern day boxing as such.

Boxing was first contested at the Canada Games in 1971 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
