It is said that the noble art of boxing originated in Ancient Greece, where grand boxing competitions were organized to commemorate the fallen...
To be more specific, it was Achilles who organized the first matches in honor of his slain friend Patroclus, who died in the Trojan War. The Funeral Games were the first glimpse of organized Greek athletics (The Iliad XXIII), which some believe to be the precursor of The Olympics as we know today.

Nowadays, most boxers are infused with a similar disposition for honor, loyaly, determination and bravery as the boxers of old. By challenging opponents, stretching the limits of physical abilities and testing mental toughness, boxing goes beyond mere fist fighting.
Many boxers do not only leave a mark by excelling in this sport, but become truly great by their persona outside the ring, while applying the same values, rituals and attitude used inside the ropes.
