Thumbs up Do Boxing and Fencing share a History?

I have noticed fencing has a similar stance to boxing stance and the way they come at you with there swords is similar to a jab.

Anyway, I am curios to know if they shared a history.

I know Daniel Mendoza was a guy who gave boxing a bit of science and so I love the history of boxing and how it evolved to a high level martial art.

Yeah boxing was supposedly fencing without a sword. Back in the day there were three sciences: gun duelling, fencing and boxing. Boxing was called the sweet science because it was the most non-lethal. Boxing and fencing were also in competition with each other at some point and people used to say fencing would kill boxing some day.

Boxing goes back to ancient Greece and probably ancient Egypt. So it was it's own thing at one point before fencing I would say.
