Here we see Prince Naseem Hamed and Augie Sanchez get tangled up and fall, thought there was obviously no knockdown, just a pair of slips. Hamed shows admirable sportsman ship in helping Sanchez to his feet, but the Marquess of Queensberry Rules are pretty clear on this point:

If either man fall through weakness or otherwise, he must get up unassisted

They both fell, not "through weakness", but "otherwise"; Naz got up mostly "unassisted", although the ref at...

A caricature of John Douglas, Marquess of Queensberry, the caption reads "A good light weight"

The Marquess of Queensberry rules is a code of generally accepted rules in the sport of boxing. They were named so as John Douglas, 9th Marquess of Queensberry publicly endorsed the code,[1] although they were written by a sportsman named John Graham Chambers. The code of rules on which modern boxing is based, the Queensberry rules were the first to mention gloves in boxing.[2] The Queensberry rules are intended for use in both professional and amateur boxing matches, thus separating it from the less popular American Fair Play Rules, which were strictly intended for amateur matches. In popular culture the term is sometimes used to refer to a sense of sportsmanship and fair play.

History[edit]

The boxing code was written by John Graham Chambers, a Welshman, and drafted in London in 1865, before being published in 1867 as "the Queensberry rules for the sport of...

“Rules are for sissies and people who are beat up by sissies.”

Marquess of Queensberry rules are rules of fair combat invented by Marquess Of Queensberry around the year 3024. He knew that the tame, docile poeple of the 30th century would never accept rules made for combat, so he traveled back in time by use of a Delorean he bought at a Yard Sale years earlier. The Rules advocated the use of weapons that don't exist and fair play.

edit The Rules

Do not talk about fight club. Do not talk about fight club. Each fight shall be between two men, or two men and Dean Stockwell, or two men, Dean Stockwell and a goat. Each man shall be equipped with a weapon that don't exist. Dean Stockwell will remain unarmed, the goat must be provided a real weapon, but must not use it unless the weapon is edible. Pork shall not be eaten by either fighter before or after the fight, and it may not be used a weapon. Any edible weapons must be consumed during the fight or neither...

The Marquess of Queensberry rules are the rules that govern the sport of boxing. The rules got their name because their author, John Graham Chambers, British Amateur Athletic Club member, was sponsored by John Sholto Douglas, the ninth Marquess of Queensberry. The rules were published in 1867 and supplanted the London Prize Ring rules, which were published in 1743. However, the first prize fight using the new Marquess of Queensberry rules did not happen until 1885.

These boxing rules are important not only because they are the modern amateur and professional rules, but also because before the rules were implemented, professional boxing was illegal in England. Before the Marquess of Queensberry rules were developed, boxing was widely viewed as a sport of the lower classes in England. However, the new rules made it more socially acceptable for members of the upper classes to enjoy the sport. Chambers' rules emphasized technique and skill, while boxing under the former rules...

Current modern rules per the Association of Boxing Commissions are as follows.[citation needed]

Boxing match

A boxing match consists of a determined number of three-minute rounds, a total of up to 12 rounds (formerly 15). A minute is typically spent between each round with the fighters in their assigned corners receiving advice and attention from their coaches. The fight is controlled by a referee who works in the ring to judge and control the fight rule on the ability of the fighters to fight safely, count knocked-down fighters, and rule on fouls. There are three judges at ringside to score the fight and assign points to the boxers, based on punches that connect, defense, knockdowns, and other, more subjective, measures. Because of the open-ended style of boxing judging, many fights have controversial results. Each fighter has an assigned corner of the ring, where his or her coach, as well as one or more “seconds” may administer to the fighter at the beginning of...

It was in 1867 that Chambers, born in Llanelly House, in Llanelli, codi-fied the

The

Dunning, Eric. , Routledge, 1999. The Queensberry rules are intended for use in both professional and amateur boxing matches, thus separating it from the less popular American Fair Play Rules, which were strictly intended for amateur matches. In popular culture the term is sometimes used to refer to a sense of sportsmanship and fair play+.

The boxing code was written by John Graham Chambers+, a Welshman, and drafted in London in 1865, before being published in 1867 as "the Queensberry rules for the sport of boxing". This code of rules superseded the Revised London Prize Ring rules+ (1853), which had themselves replaced the original London Prize Ring rules+ (1743) of Jack Broughton+. This version persuaded boxers that "you must not fight simply to win; no holds barred is not the way; you must win by the rules".

One early prize fighter who fought under Marquess of Queensberry rules was Jem Mace+, former English heavyweight champion, who defeated Bill Davis in Virginia City,...
