In 1867, the Marquess of Queensberry rules were drafted by John Chambers for amateur championships held at Lillie Bridge in London for Lightweights, Middleweights and Heavyweights. The rules were published under the patronage of the Marquess of Queensberry, whose name has always been associated with them.

The rules of boxing vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and on whether it is an amateur or professional bout. Today, virtually all sanctioned professional bouts are governed by the Association of Boxing Commissions Rules. A violation of the following rules is considered a foul, and can result in a point deduction or disqualification: * You cannot hit below the belt, hold, trip, kick, headbutt, wrestle, bite, spit on, or push your opponent. * You cannot hit with your head, shoulder, forearm, or elbow. * You cannot hit with an open glove, the inside of the glove, the wrist, the backhand, or the side of the hand. * You cannot punch your opponent's back, or the back of his head or neck (rabbit punch), or on the kidneys (kidney punch). * You cannot throw a punch while holding on to the ropes to gain leverage. * You can't hold your opponent and hit him at the same time, or duck so low that your head is below your opponent's belt line. * When the referee breaks you from a clinch, you have to take a full step back; you cannot immediately hit your opponent--that's called "hitting on the break" and is illegal. * You cannot spit out your mouthpiece on purpose to get a rest. * If you score a knockdown of your opponent, you must go to the farthest neutral corner while the referee makes the count. * If you "floor" your opponent, you cannot hit him when he's on the canvas. * A floored boxer has up to ten seconds to get back up on his feet before losing the bout by knockout. * A boxer who is knocked down cannot be saved by the bell in any round, depending upon the local jurisdiction's rules. * A boxer who is hit with an accidental low blow has up to five minutes to recover. If s/he cannot continue after five minutes, s/he is considered knocked out. * If the foul results in an injury that causes the fight to end immediately, the boxer who committed the foul is disqualified. * If the foul causes an injury but the bout continues, the referee orders the judges to deduct two points from the boxer who caused the injury. * If an unintentional foul causes the bout to be stopped immediately, the bout is ruled a "no decision" if four rounds have not been fully completed. (If the bout was scheduled for four rounds, then three rounds must have been completed.) If four rounds have been completed, the judges' scorecards are tallied and the fighter who is ahead on points is awarded a technical decision. If the scores are even, it will be called a "technical draw." * If a boxer is knocked out of the ring, he gets a count of 20 to get back in and on his feet. He cannot be assisted. * In some jurisdictions the standing eight-count or the three knockdown rule also may be in effect. * In other jurisdictions, only the referee can stop the bout.

Boxing has a good set of rules. Firstly, it's almost the same as Wrestling only it's limited to either just kicking or just punching. Secondly, it's broken down into various rounds; about 12. Thirdly, one must have more knockout rounds than the opponent.

Who did boxing get invented by?

There's evidence that Boxing existed long ago, circa 1500-3000 B.C but it was not called "boxing" and did not have a name. It wasnt until the 16th century England that it was revitalised and given the name "boxing" and also "bare knuckle boxing" and "prizefighter" by an English bare knuckle boxer named John Chambers.Then the English gave it rules (those rules still stand today) Those rules are "The Marquess of Queensbury rules" and were also created there. So the English get the credit for inventing "Modern Boxing" that we all know today.The first ever documented boxing match was in 16th century in England.

Which marques gives his name to the rule that governs the Sort of boxing?

The Marquess of Queensberry rules is a code of generally accepted rules in the sport of boxing. They were named so because John Douglas, 9th Marquess of Queensberry publicly endorsed the code.[1] The code of rules on which modern boxing is based, the Queensberry rules were the first to mention gloves in boxing.[2] The Queensberry rules are intended for use in both professional and amateur boxing matches, thus separating it from the less popular American Fair Play Rules, which were strictly intended for amateur matches. In popular culture the term is sometimes used to refer to a sense of sportsmanship and fair play.
