Women Boxing History While women's boxing can loosely trace it beginnings to London in the 1720's, throughout the ensuing decades, there were various exhibitions and scattered bouts until the 1950's when several fighters, most notably Barbara Buttrick, JoAnn Hagen (Verhaegen), and Phyllis Kugler staged professional fights. The sport rekindled again in the 1970s thanks to the efforts of several important trailblazers. The 1970's, in particular, were highlighted by many women’s boxing "firsts" including many states lifting bans for women to box; issuing "first time" boxing licenses, sanctioning boxing matches; and the various commissions approving more than four rounds for women’s bouts.
London: First-staged women fights. The women would punch, use their feet and knee lifting/kicking to all parts of their opponents body. They also could maul, scratch and throw. This resulted in serious injury for either or both fighters. 1876.
Susan Cahn in "Coming on strong, gender and equality in 20th century sport" notes a match between Nell Saunders and Rose Harland in 1876 at Hills Theater in NYC. they supposedly fought for a silver butter dish. This was considered the first women's match in the United States.

ABOUT THE AUGUSTA BOXING CLUB... The Augusta Recreation and Parks Department, with assistance from area law enforcement agencies, implemented the Augusta Boxing Association/ Augusta Police Athletic League (P.A.L.) in an effort to curtail drug abuse and crime among young adults and children. This program uses sports, specifically boxing, as a tool to attract young people who have been given the opportunity to build self confidence, develop self discipline, learn to function as a team, develop good sportsmanship and experience the rewards of always striving to do their best. In its 20 plus year history, several hundred children and young adults have benefited from their participation in the Augusta Boxing Association. The program is preventative in nature as opposed to rehabilitative, with its participants coming from the entire Central Savanna River Area (CSRA). The majority of these children have had no prior contact with the court system. We are able to go beyond the athletic aspects of the program and provide tutoring and drug counseling, take them on field trips and require attendance at a variety of educational programs. Through the boxing tournaments, many of our participants have had the opportunity to travel extensively in the United States and abroad. Several members of our team have qualified to represent the United States Olympic Boxing Association and have competed in locations such as Russia, Germany, Sweden, Poland and England. Jacob Hudson, currently ranked # 1 in the United States, one of our participants, represented the U.S.A in the 1998 Goodwill Games in New York, New York. We are an official affiliate of USA Boxing, the Olympic Authority. We are also a Chapter Member of the National Police Athletice League.

Boxing History
Felix Savon won a historic third Olympic heavyweight gold medal - but only after surviving a late scare with a cut under his eye. The 33-year-old Cuban legend won comfortably on points 21-13 against Russian Sultanahmed Ibzagimov but had a scare 14 seconds from the end of the final. Savon equalled the Olympic record of Hungarian Lazlo Papp and countryman Teofilo Stevenson with three boxing golds each. Australian referee Wayne Rose stopped the bout to inspect a gash under Savon's left eye. But Rose allowed the fight to continue after wiping Savon's cut eye and the Cuban colossus kept out of harm's way over the final seconds to win the fight and enter Olympic boxing immortality. It was the same eye which caused Savon problems in his semi-final win over German Sebastian Kober. Savon is a legend in amateur boxing and has won six world titles.

Boxing manager guilty of fixing fights, bribery
By wire services Published May 4, 2004 LAS VEGAS - Manager Robert Mittleman pleaded guilty to fixing fights and trying to pay a federal prosecutor and judge $15,000 to have a case against one of his indicted boxers dismissed, authorities said. Mittleman, 61, of Oak Park, Ill., pleaded guilty to two counts of sports bribery and one of bribery of a public official, according to a plea memo unsealed by court order last week. Mittleman admitted that he arranged for boxer Thomas Williams, known as Top Dog, to lose a match with Brian Nielsen in Denmark on March 31, 2000, the guilty plea memo states.

Making Olympic History New York Times At the first modern Olympics in 1896, Melpomene became the first female to compete, although unofficially, in the games. Women have made many advancements in the Olympic games over the past 100 years and it appears that the 2000 games in Sydney, Australia will benefit them more than ever before. Two new sports have been added to the games, increasing the total number of sports to twenty-eight. In addition, Sydney will incorporate more than twenty new women's events into its program. This is twenty more than were seen in the Atlanta games in 1996. For the first time in Olympic competition, the Modern Pentathlon, Water Polo, and Weightlifting will include events for women. Athletic, Aquatic, and Shooting sports are also adding more women's events. Two sports being added to the Olympic agenda are the Triathlon and Mia Hamm (white jersey) battles for the ball during the U.S. women's 2-0 victory over Norway. (USA Today)

Evidence that Martial Arts were being practiced at that time can be found in tombs where wall-paintings show two men in fighting-stance. Others reject this evidence and say that these men could be dancing as well. Back then, time there were three kingdoms:
  • Koguryo (37 B.C. - 668 A.D.)
  • Paekje (18 B.C. - 600 A.D.)

    English Boxing and the 'French Connection' - by Ollie Batts
    (previously published in the UK, the author reserves all rights) According to Michel Delahaye, in his book La Boxe Française, Ergo Press, April 1989, the French style of fighting with the hands and feet, known as Boxe Francaise (French Boxing), was assimilated by Charles Lecour (1808 - 94), the son of a French baker, in 1832. Prior to that time, a method of fighting existed in old Paris where the combatants kicked one another with their everyday shoes on. The common name for a street shoe at that time was "savate" (pronounced sa-vat ), which simply meant 'old shoe'. The name savate , therefore, became associated with this particular method of street-fighting. Those early street brawls did not stop at kicking however, as gouging, wrestling and headbutting are also said to have taken place (just like in England today!). The first person to make an attempt to systematise savate was Michel Casseux (aka) Pisseux (1794 - 1869), who opened the first 'official' Salle (training establishment) in 1825. Unfortunately, savate was still recognised by many as a style of street-fighting, and therefore, initially only attracted those of dubious means and character.

    Amateur Boxing in the United States
    USA Boxing, Inc., located in Colorado Springs, CO, is the national governing body for all amateur boxing in the United States. As the NGB, USA Boxing is responsible for the administration, development and promotion of Olympic-style boxing in the U.S. USA Boxing recognizes group members, which are organizations that hold national programs on the same level as USA Boxing's. Group members include: local boxing committees (LBC's) of which there are 60 throughout the country; the four branches of the armed forces; the National Collegiate Boxing Association (NCBA); the Police Athletic League (PAL); the Silver Gloves and the National Golden Gloves of America. Each of the Olympic Sports must have one international sports federation (IF) that is responsible for organizing, administering and developing the sport on a worldwide basis. For boxing, the International Amateur Boxing Assn. (AIBA) is the IF. The IF is a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The IF recognizes the national governing body (NGB) for each member country; that NBG must be a member of its national Olympic committee - United States Olympic Committee (USOC) in the U.S. Each country may have only one NGB to represent it in AIBA. The IF sets the rules and regulations for the international level of competition, and an NGB's rules cannot be more restrictive than those of its IF.
