Now entering the ring: the first known boxer.
In boxing, the most effective piece of equipment used are your fists. It’s a pure sport of man
verses man (and woman verses woman, too). The boundaries are set by ropes that enclose a
ring where two opponents test each other’s strength and willpower to out think and out fight their
Boxing is not a new sport. It’s been around for thousands of years. In fact, boxing dates back to
ancient Egypt around 3,000 B.C. It was a time when the Olympics started, and the winners
weren’t rewarded with medals. They were rewarded with their life being spared. It was
especially true for Gladiators where their ring was the colosseum. Sometimes they fought men.
Other times they fought animals. No matter who or what they were fighting, it was a wild flurry of
excitement that kept the emperor and his subject cheering. If one opponent fell to the ground,
the emperor would give the thumb down to end the match and the life of the fighter.
While those fights didn’t last forever, more modern match ups lasted more than just a few hours.
In 1893, one epic boxing match up went 110 rounds. It was fought between two tough men by
the names of Andy Bowen and Jack Burke. Talk about going the distance. What’s more, there
was no victory for either boxer. The judges decided it was a draw so these men walked away
with nothing to show for their superhuman efforts except for banged up bodies.
As the modern Olympic took shape, the 1904 games brought some more formal rules, time
structures and weight classes to the sport. From round one the sport was a hit, literally. Who
took the most gold medals? The United States of America. American fighters not only won every
weight class, they won the respect of boxing fans everywhere.
While boxers use their fists in the ring, it’s often their heads that take the brunt of the
punishment during a match. In research conducted using 70 elite boxers, it was found that these
fighters could throw punches that delivered an average of 776 pounds of force. One study had
the hardest hitter pounding out an average of 1,300 pounds of force. Ouch!
In 1985, a study of WBC heavyweight champ Frank Bruno, measured his cannon ball like jabs
at 920 pounds of raw force. How hard is that? Enough to push an opponent's head at a rate 53
times the force of gravity. With all that said, it’s unbelievable (actually, mind blowing) to think
that mandatory helmet protection wasn’t put into place until the 1984 Olympics.
When the referee says to the boxers, “Let's have a clean fight, touch hands, back to your
corners,” you know fight night has started.
If you enjoyed learning that previous bit of boxing education and historical insights, you could be
even smarter if you ordered Pay-Per-View on Suddenlink for the next big upcoming fight. You

Pay-Per-View boxing has showcased the biggest names as they take home the biggest
There are a lot of on-demand boxing matches you want to watch. And on your must-see list is
probably “combat sports.” What would happen if you paired up combat sports with professional
boxing? This did take place when UFC legend from Ireland, Conner McGregor and the United
State boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather, came face-to-face in the ring on August 26th, 2017.
The winner’s prize was worth millions of dollars and took place as an audience of an estimated
23 million fans of boxing and UFC watched on Pay-Per-View.
The fight was done by round 10. The victor wasn’t the fast kicking UFC phenome McGregor like
so many boxing analysts had predicted. Not even close. He went down like a rock in a knockout
blow given by the deadly hands of Mayweather. Mayweather out-paced McGregor 170-111 in
punches landed, and 152-84 in the total count of power punches. And even though McGregor
lost in the ring he won at the bank with fight winnings that added up to $100 million dollars.
Sure, that’s a big payday, but that was chump change to Floyd Mayweather (50-) career
victories) who spent a little more than 30 minutes in the ring and left with $300 million bucks.
That fight generated more than $600 million in revenue from a combination of Pay-Per-View
purchases, ticket sales, sponsorships and merchandise.
Will there be a rematch in the near future that you can watch on Suddenlink pay per view? Fight
fans sure hope so, but they may not get their wish since after the fight Floyd Mayweather was
quoted as saying,” “I had to come straight ahead and give the fans a show. That’s what I gave
them,” he said. “This was my last fight tonight, for sure.”
A flurry of insults won’t knockout a champion, but a sneaky right jab can do the job.
Boxers train day and often night to be a top contender. They also exercise their mouths as they
talk smack about their opponents. The legendary Muhammad Ali said this about George
Foreman back in 1974, "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. His hands can't hit what his eyes
can't see. Now you see me, now you don't.” Then there’s the powerhouse Mike Tyson who was
quoted as once saying about an opponent, “I’m the best ever. I’m the most brutal and vicious,
the most ruthless champion there has ever been. No one can stop me. My style is impetuous,
my defense is impregnable, and I’m the ferocious. I want his heart!” These fighters backed their
mouths with their fists. These are legendary stories you can see live on Suddenlink Pay-Per-
The rich history of boxing has given way to today’s fighters who go by the names of Vasyl
Lomachenko (13-1, 10 KOs), Canelo Alvarez (52-1-2, 35 KOs), Terence Crawford (35-0, 26
KOs), Oleksandr Usyk (16-0, 12 KOs), Naoya Inoue (18-0, 16 KOs), Gennady Golovkin (38-1-1,
34 KOs), Errol Spence (25-0, 21 KOs) ... the list goes on. These are the legends in the making
and the stars all the major sports channels such as ESPN and FOX talk about.
