The earliest form of boxing for the sport goes back to the old olympic games in Rome where they would fight to the death in the coleseum.

The Ancient Egyptians, I believe, were the first to start boxing. not completely sure on that. My boxing history really starts in 1810, when Tom Molineaux became the first bare knuckled american heavyweight champion. Surprisingly, he was black.
