Past News Releases


The history of boxing dates back farther, and is richer and more intricate, than nearly any other sport or competition on the planet. While many fans are innately fascinated by boxing history, few have easy access to detailed information which they can utilize to help feed their passion and learn about the sport's past. That's all going to change now though, thanks to the expansive boxing history section provided by, the web's rising leader in boxing news.

"The goal is to bring the history of boxing to the masses," says the owner and editor of, Jake Emen. Boxing enthusiasts can now find everything they have been craving in one easy-to-navigate place. This eliminates the need to scour over dozens of different websites or sources, and it also eliminates the need to purchase handfuls of expensive books.

One of the most exciting and comprehensive aspects of this collection of information and boxing history is the decade-by-decade inside look at the sport throughout the 20th century.

Emen says that, "We combed over the records and various historical sources for each decade and provided a special breakdown that can't be matched anywhere else. Every decade includes sections on the state of the game, the best fighters of the era, the biggest events of the time, and more."

There have been many boxing books released on the history of the sport, but realized that fans don't want to spend weeks or months reading on topics that could be broken down to them in hours, and at no cost. Meanwhile, many other online sources merely glossed over the facts, relied on dubious sources, or even copied and pasted information that was already available elsewhere. Therefore, set out to give the fans what they were really looking for, and what the website felt couldn't be readily found anywhere else.

The new boxing history section on the site also includes a variety of lists, profiles on historical fighters and a wide range of fantasy fights. Emen explains that, "Fantasy fights take two legends from the sport who never got the opportunity to square off, and pits them against one another in a hypothetical contest."

These columns have become fan favorites, largely because, "There is nothing that boxing fans enjoy doing more than debating one another," about the sport, different eras and different fighters, says Emen.

The in-depth look at the history of boxing becomes a piece of the website's Boxing 101 tutorial, which aims to inform fans of all ages, backgrounds and interests about the ins and outs of boxing. Other Boxing 101 sections on the website include a comprehensive definition list of boxing terminology, explanations of boxing scoring and judging, lists of boxing promoters and sanctioning bodies, and special features such as a page of Muhammad Ali facts.
