73 YEARS AMATEUR BOXING OF AZERBAIJAN.

History and the Human Experience
Boxing, which is a popular international sport on both amateur and professional levels, involves two competitors who fight with their gloved fists inside a square boxing ring until a winner is declared. Boxing as a sport can be traced as far back as ancient Greece, where it was included in the Olympic Games. Although boxing also existed during the Roman era, it wasn't until the 18th century that it became a popular professional sport in England. Then, during the Industrial Revolution, boxing evolved into a favorite sport of the working class.

Some aspects of the modern Olympics come from the ancient Greek Olympics, but there are also a lot of differences between the ancient and modern Games. The ancient Olympics always took place at Olympia, in the south of Greece, every four years in August or September. According to tradition they were started in 776 B.C. and they continued until A.D. 393. They were held to honour the god Zeus, who had a large sanctuary next to the stadium where the competitions were held. The Olympics were very popular and important events. The Greeks even measured their years by reference to the Olympics! Thousands of people came from all over Greece to compete or watch. If there was a war, there was a truce around the time of the Olympics to allow all competitors to go. Most spectators slept in the open or in tents. There was no city at ancient Olympia, just the sanctuary, and sporting venues. The Ancient Olympics: Spectators and Events

Ghouls and Rules in Boxing
by By Adam Pollack

At the 2002 Winter Olympics, Canadian figure skating pair David Pelletier and Jamie Sale won silver and the Russians Elena Berezhnaya and Anton Sikharulidzewon gold. However, almost everyone agreed that it was a tragic judging decision because the Canadians clearly skated better.
After an investigation was conducted, it was discovered that the French judge had been pressured by her own skating federation to engage in vote swapping, granting the Russians gold in pairs so that the Russians would grant the French gold in ice dancing. In light of this, the Canadians have been granted a gold medal in addition to the Russian pair who won controversially (but get to keep their gold) and the French judge has been suspended indefinitely for misconduct. This is the fourth time a duplicate medal has been awarded in Olympic history.
This brings us to revisit the 1988 Summer Olympics, where something was rotten in South Korea. Roy Jones, Jr. fought brilliantly in the final against South Korea's Park Si Hun. He obviously won all three rounds. However, the gold went to Hun, and amidst the controversy Jones, Jr. was granted the Val Barker best boxer award for the tournament. Given that he was being called the tournament's best boxer but had not won gold, it was essentially an admission that Jones, Jr. had been wronged. Yet, to this day, he has not been granted the gold he rightfully earned. This should be corrected.

The Blooding of our fresh faced Olympians
Barry Stephen Hanley
KO Nation, the latest HBO attempt at resurrecting the ailing fight game, played host to the unveiling of several promising Olympians. Fresh from Sydney, all had opted to leave the singlet and head gear in the past, opting for the muddy, shark infested waters of the professional game.
The bouts were held in The Theater, and adjunct to Madison Square Garden formerly known as the Felt Forum. Five Olympians were featured in their professional debuts..
Three of the fights deserve a mention. First, a middleweight contest between Bronze medalist Jermaine Taylor. Taylor, from Arkansas, was hoping to make his State renowned for something other than the charismatic philanderer who occupied the White House for the past eight years. His opponent was a journeyman from Scranton, P.A, 'Irish' Chris Walsh. The only thing eyecatching about Walsh's performance was an intricate celtic cross tatooed into the small of his back. Jermaine 'Bad Intentions' Taylor lived up to his moniker. His solid right crosses bombarded Walsh from the opening bell. 2:30 of the second round marked the first knockdown as Walsh hit the deck due to a crisp right cross. Kevin Kelley, serving as a commentator, emphasized the importance of 'cleaning up' once your opponent is hurt. " If you can't clean up, you'll get cleaned up" he added.
As Walsh sat on his stool between rounds he prophetically announced, "I think he's got me George." Sure enough, Taylor landed the definitive right hand in 2:50 of the fourth round, prompting Arthur Mercante Jr. to stop the fight. Afterwards, a charming personable Taylor said he found it hard to adjust to fighting sans headgear.

"And we compel men to exercise their bodies not only for the games, so that they can win the prizes-for very few of them go to them-but to gain a greater good from it for the whole city, and for the men themselves" Lucian, Anacharsis, ca. AD 170 In a fertile valley of Ancient Greece, at a place called Olympia, the first Olympic Games were held at 776 BC. This games were held every four years, for a thousand years. The Games, like all Greek Games, were an intrinsic part of a religious festival held in honor of Zeus. Hippias of Elis, at ca. 400 BC, compiled a list of Olympic victors, and according to him, the only event at the beginning was a stadium -length foot race (stade). The distance of the race came from the legend, that Hercules, the god of Physical Strength, run the same distance in one breath. It has been speculated, that the games at 776 BC were not the first games conducted, but rather the first organized games. It is believed, that this lead from the peace agreement between the city-states Elis and Pisa. The Eleans traced the founding of the Olympic Games back to their King Iphitos. King Iphitos was told by the Delphic Oracle to plant an Olive Tree from which the victor' wreaths for the Olympic Games was cut. Another legend says, that the Games were founded by Heracles, son of Alcmene. In Ancient Greece it was thought that the first Games held in Olympia was organized by heroes and gods.

Sunday, October 1
GIANT IS SHORT OF KILLER INSTINCT Top dog: Audley Harrison enjoys dishing out the punishment during his super-heavyweight Olympic semi-final against Italy's Paolo Vidoz. Photograph: Rick Bowmer IT MIGHT be a compliment to Audley Harrison, the Londoner who in the early hours of this morning fought for Britain's first boxing Olympic gold medal for 32 years, to suggest that he lacks the primeval instincts necessary for the real world of professional pugilism. But there were voices in his ear, authentic voices from entrepreneurs who manage the three-ring circus around Lennox Lewis, Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson, suggesting obscene swags of money are there for the taking should Harrison say the word. Harrison, however, would have to put considerably more at risk than most heavyweight prizefighters. He is not a fugitive from the mean streets. He holds a degree from Brunel University in sports science and leisure management, and has a loquacious way of putting things. "I've got lots of different gears," Harrison said before stepping in against his gold-medal rival from Kazakhstan. "I study my opponents, and change my style to take advantage of their strengths and weaknesses. Basically, I figure out how to take them out in the nicest possible way." With due respect to the Khazakstani, Mukhtarkhan Dildabekov, who hails from the tough army school of a former Soviet state, the professionals would of course expect to make more of a westerner following the path of Muhammad Ali, Lewis and Holyfield and even the beast Tyson from Olympic glory to hyped up gore. They can spell his name in lights, for a start. And Harrison's perfectly weighted one-liners, his rainbow platted short curls are box office material.
