I've heard various speculations but nothing concrete. Anybody here know where the word comes from?
When looking at the etymology of the term Box / boxing:
"a blow," circa. 1300, related to Middle Dutch boke, Middle High German buc, and Danish bask, all meaning "a blow" or "with the fist".
"to beat, thrash, strike with the fist or hand". Meaning "to fight with the fists" is from 1560s
Separate names with a comma.
