Details of World Championship Boxing and the Ticket Luck value
If there is one place where you can test your mantle and that is inside a boxing ring. There are many boxing championships held now but none is quite as entertaining or exciting as the World Heavyweight Championship Boxing. All the heat and action set within the ring is ignited ever more by the frantic crowd which never stops cheering and chanting. The proximity of the players with fans, audience is one of the reasons why this sport is just as intoxicating for the professional boxers as it is for the general audience and fans.
Boxing is an old sport which has been around for a long time now. But never had it been this much fun. Part of the reason of the huge exposure and advertisement of both the players and the sport per se. interestingly enough, boxing has been going on for a long time without rules. Rules became a part of the professional sport only in 1743, the London Prize Ring Rules. Almost a century later, these rules were replaced in 1853 with the Revised London Prize Ring Rules. Finally John Graham Chambers' boxing code which was published in1867 became the first though rules of the game. It went by the name of 'the Queensberry rules for the sport of boxing' or as the 'Marquess of Queensberry rules which is now generally accepted as the general rule for the sport of boxing. The first ever fighter to win a fight under these rules was James Mace who was more commonly known as Jem. He won the title of English Heavyweight in 1861.
Like all the regular matches of boxing, the championship matches have always had an unparalleled popularity ever since they began. In the late 1800th and early 1900th century when the championships were not held in actuality, the only way of declaring a champion was via his popularity and public acclamation. The champion of those times was usually a boxer with a considerable number of decent wins on his credit and a consistency in his winning performance. In case of retirement, when a person retired without ever losing a match or a match being tied, the title was split amongst several people for several years at a time. The heavyweights though were spared to this treatment as they only shared their title twice in the entire boxing championship history; once in the 1960s and then again in 1990s.
World Championship titles are usually held by sports associations. Unfortunately enough, there was no boxing association form until 1910 when finally the International Boxing Union (IBU) was founded in no other city than Paris, where all the good things seem to come from. The name of the association was changed in 1946 to European Boxing Union. All the fights and title challenges were held under this association till 1963. It was that time when the organization was inducted into the World Boxing Council (WBC). The American rival boxing association on the other hand was founded in 1920 in New York and it was called the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC). It too organized world title matches until it got incorporated into the World Boxing Council in 1970s. Today, WBC holds all the World Championship Boxing contests along with World Boxing Council, the International Boxing Federation and finally the World Boxing Organization.
World Championship boxing has brought several stars into the limelight like George Foreman, a 2 time World Heavyweight Champion, a gold medalist and a genius in the boxing ring.
