Boxing, one of the most popular sports in Azerbaijan, requires dedication, skill and self-discipline of both mind and body. Considered one of the oldest and most traditional sports, early evidence of boxing dates back to 688 BC. The era of modern boxing is considered to begin in the 18th century when the Marquess of Queensberry Rules were published in 1867.
