Broughton’s Rules were maintained with some modifications until 1838 when they were replaced by the London Prize Ring Rules.
During this time, boxing was introduced to the American continent and at the end of the nineteenth century boxing fever began to spread in non-whites countries, especially in those where there was British or American influence, such as Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Panama, Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Philippines, South Africa and Spain.
Ever since 2009 United Kingdom Boxing Union (UKBU) has evolved, risen up and transformed the way we look at this wonderful sport called boxing, for the organisation most important thing is the safety, health and respect for the boxer who steps into the ring with a thirst to win, to please his/her public regardless of the risk s/he may face.
