Recorded instances of boxing did not appear again until 1681 when reports of bare-knuckle fighting first appeared in England. The first attempt to regulate the sport was made in 1743 when the London Prize Ring Rules were introduced in an attempt to reduce the number of deaths occurring in the sport. The rules of modern boxing were first laid down in 1867 in the form of the Marques of Queensbury rules. Amongst the rules was the introduction of three minute rounds with one minute intervals between them. A ten second count to indicate a knockout was also introduced as was the introduction of standard gloves.Three weight divisions of heavyweight, middleweight and lightweight were first initiated.
There is evidence that forms of boxing have taken place for many thousands of years; earliest evidence from Africa dates back to about 4000 BC and there is evidence of boxing in Greece from as early as 1500 BC. In 688 BC a form of boxing was first accepted as an Olympic sport by the ancient Greeks and was included in the ancient games. Forms of boxing were also documented during Roman times until it was banned in 500 AD.
