Boxing as a sport has continued for thousands of years. Originally as a bare fist fighting sport, it first arose in parts of Africa, including Ancient Egypt spreading to Southern Europe. To the Ancient Greeks fighting was a game played by the Gods of Olympus and was introduced as an Olympic game as early as 687 BC.
