Hello, and welcome to Box 2 Glory!
The late 1990s appeared to be the beginning of the end of boxing. Irrelevant organizations, an alphabet soup of titles and excessive weight divisions were bad enough problems but the rampant corruption was the real killer for the sport that has been king just a few short decades before. When mixed martial arts entered the mass media the boxing gurus did nothing to promote their sport. Their arrogance, just as ubiquitous as their corruption, lead them to assume that boxing would always be king. With not a single boxing event available on public television and big money pay per view events that almost never lived up to hype boxing was a dying sport.
In order to reinvigorate the fans Box2Glory (B2G) organization was created in 2018. B2G took a page out of FIFA book by building an international boxing organization with universally accepted, well defined rules and regulations. In 2020 B2G went live and started holding their sanctioned bouts. The boxers had the chance to gain promotion out of their respective countries to the continental and eventually world level competitions. To improve the safety of the boxers the size of the glove was reduced. This helped to avoid potentially deadly prolonged beatings and resulted in higher number of quicker KOs.
In the beginning not many big names boxers signed for B2G; the boxing establishment was very hostile to B2G and boxers did not want to risk their well being that was closely tied to that establishment. B2G was only active in a few select countries and financial rewards were much smaller than what top boxers could have made outside of B2G. However, with time, it became obvious that B2G represented a much needed fresh start for the sport. Some contracts were signed and boxing once again started to appear on network television.
In time, it became harder to believe that boxing once existed without Box2Glory.
