Default How Ancient is Boxing?

1 Corinthians 9:26-27
Therefore I do not run like one who runs aimlessly, or box like one who beats the air. Instead, I discipline my body and bring it under strict control, so that after preaching to others, I myself will not be disqualified.

It goes way back to the biblical days. The Greeks and Romans made it so brutal that they would wrap their hands in heavily linen and dip their hands in thick sap, then they will roll their sap drench linen in shards of glass or they would wrap their hands with leather strap with metal studs in them and they would fight to the death.
