Boxing is a combat sport and a martial art where two people wearing protective gear, such as boxing gloves, boxing mouthguards, and boxing hand wraps, throw punches at each other for a certain amount of time in a boxing ring. The earliest form of boxing can be traced back to Egypt and Sumer between 1500-1400 BC. The earliest boxing in the West, as it is known today, can be traced back to 688 BC as an Ancient Greek Olympic game. It continued to evolve through the 16th and 18th centuries in Great Britain and eventually took hold in the United States. One of the first fights ever recorded in the U.S. was in New Orleans in 1892 between "Gentleman Jim" Corbett, who defeated John L. Sullivan, and thus laid the foundation for some of the top American boxers of all time.
By the 20th century, boxing became a professional sport. As more Americans began to have a television set in their home, boxing continued to grow through the 1960s and 1970s, yielding many of the boxing legends we know today, such as Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, and George Foreman.
Here is a list of some of the top American boxers of all time and the stats over the course of their careers.
