Boxing is a martial art and combat sport in which two people throw punches at each other, usually with gloved hands. Historically, the goals have been to weaken and knock down the opponent.
Amateur boxing is both an Olympic and Commonwealth sport and is a common fixture in most international games—it also has its own World Championships. Boxing is supervised by a referee over a series of one- to three-minute intervals called rounds. The result is decided when an opponent is deemed incapable to continue by a referee, is disqualified for breaking a rule, resigns by throwing in a towel, or is pronounced the winner or loser based on the judges' scorecards at the end of the contest. In the event that both fighters gain equal scores from the judges, the fight is considered a draw (professional boxing). In Olympic boxing, due to the fact that a winner must be declared, in the case of a draw - the judges use technical criteria to choose the most deserving winner of the bout.



The Philippine confirmed that fought with a sore right shoulder and that conditioned a fight. “The sport had it to do what was right; he would not sell a pig in a poke. I had to fight," he wrote. The bell rang and the fight ended. Mayweather was 200 million and retained the title. Pacquiao , 100 million was injured. Both are in their late career. The business was perfect, nothing failed, Mayweather Jr. pocketed about 200 million dollars and Pacquiao, injured, gave his crown champion of the World Trade Organization (WBO) in exchange for a profit of 100 million , says the Context portal.


Floyd Mayweather:
He retired undefeated with a record of 49-0, 26 KOs . It was 12 times champion in five divisions (super feather, lightweight, super lightweight, welterweight and super welterweight) . It is considered the best fighter of his era and the greatest defensive fighter of all time. Despite not being an idol, he broke all box office records sales and pay- per-view.


Martin Vargas:
Chilean ex-boxer. He tried four times to get the first world boxing title to Chile, without success. However, he managed to become a national sporting legend.Vargas holds a record of 92 wins, 15 losses and 3 draws. His 62 knockouts do member of the select group of fighters with 50 or more wins like this.


Jab: The most basic punch in a boxer's arsenal is the jab. The jab is a light, fast punch, meant to keep an opponent at bay and set up heavier punches. A series of well-placed jabs can put an opponent on the defense, allowing the fighter to work inside to the body. It's most effective when it catches an opponent off guard, but beginners frequently telegraph their jabs by loading up their muscle immediately before throwing the punch. An observant opponent will notice the bicep or pectoral muscle twitch and be ready to block and counter punch. While you're learning the jab, practice keeping your bicep loaded throughout the round, so it's ready to snap out a jab at any time.
 Heavy Cross: Once you have mastered the jab, you are ready to follow up with the heavy cross. The cross is thrown with the dominant hand and is more powerful than the jab. When throwing the cross, the fighter must use his legs to brace the punch. Because beginners often feel like they need to reach forward with their crosses to hit an opponent, they tend to extend their back leg and get up on their toes, leaving themselves wide open and unsteady for body shots. Stay grounded when throwing a cross by pivoting on your back foot as if grinding out a cigarette butt with the ball of your foot. This will help you maintain balance and add more power to the punch.

Hook: One of the most common mistakes new boxers make is drawing their arm back before throwing a hook. Not only does this telegraph the punch, it also saps the energy out of it. A powerful hook originates at the hip. Start by working on a tight inside hook while standing in front of the heavy bag. With hands up in guard, raise your elbow up to shoulder level, swivel your hip and let your arm go along for the ride. This puts the full power of the body behind the punch. Don't forget to pull your arm back to guard immediately. Once this motion becomes fluid, step back from the bag and work on extending the hook further without winding up the arm
Uppercut: Many boxers telegraph their uppercut with an exaggerated scooping motion. Like the cross and hook, the uppercut needs to come from the body and be grounded by the legs. Whereas the hook's power originates with rotation of the hips, the uppercut's power comes from rotation of the shoulders. This is especially useful coming out of a weave or a slip. After weaving to the right, whip your left shoulder back in the other direction, allowing it to pull your right shoulder around, and drive your right arm into your opponent's gut. Try again on the other side, then practice one after another, weave right, right uppercut, weave left, left uppercut. Then step away from the bag and use the same principles to throw the uppercut from farther away without resorting to a scooping motion.
