The longest boxing match (with gloves) in history was 110 rounds long.
It began around 9 p.m. on April 6, 1893 and ended the next day well after 4 a.m.
Andy Bowen and Jack Burke fought for seven hours and 19 minutes in New Orleans, La. before the match was eventually deemed "no contest" when the
fighters were too exhausted to continue. That decision was later changed to a "draw."
Yeah, 110 rounds is an amazing length of time to fight. I think people were much tougher in the past, but considering how much energy it takes to
fight even one three minute round - going 110 rounds is an amzing feat.
I once read of a bare knuckle fight going 106 rounds. Just thinking of taking that much punishment is incredible.
