Boxing as a Competitive Sport

Box definitely has an interesting history through. In 2008 saw an increase in the number of games; at the end of the year, there were over 30 games taking place in Greater London with over 1,000 members attending and over 15,000 spectators. There are some traditional boxing organizations that still exist, such as The British & Commonwealth Amateur Boxing Association and the British Boxing Association.
The Northern Ireland Amateur Boxing Association was established in 1955 as the NI Amateur Boxing Association after that boxing really seemed to take off even with betting, which almost leveled with the popularity of poker, which was still in it’s prime. Maybe still is to this day, with the success of sites like SecretPokerLeague even may come back with a bang.
