In 1867, Londoner John Chambers formulated the 12 rules for the Marquess of Queensbury that formed the basis for modern boxing and is largely credited with its invention.

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.
