White Collar Boxing

White collar boxing began in the USA in the late eighties/early nineties and the sport’s spiritual home is Gleason's Gym in Brooklyn; the financiers of Wall Street provided most of the early competitors (hence white collar boxing). By the mid-90s the sport had crossed the Atlantic and regular events were being held in London; by 2000 white collar boxing had become very popular.
