KEEPING THE ESSENCE OF PRIZEFIGHTING ALIVE

Rocky, the American blockbuster starring Sylvester Stallone, is a classic boxing movie. It can be said that it was this movie that instigated the love and fondness towards this sport. Although boxing was common in many parts of the world, and people participated in it in huge numbers, the sport took an ugly turn. This sport became a mecca of bets and deals. Boxing in the early eras was done with bare hands. So not only were the bets and deals illegal, but the sport also became brutal. As much as the participants liked fighting bare-knuckled, a ban was put on them as it was becoming too harmful and dangerous.

As of lately, boxing has lost some of its charms, and it has significantly lost many of its participants and enthusiasts. Professor B.
