Nummerpiger in the boxing ring is an ancient tradition.
But the tradition is now being broken in connection with one of today's biggest boksebrag.
It writes The Independent.
Boksebraget is the long-awaited revanchekamp for briton Anthony Joshua against the mexican-american Andy Ruiz Jr. on Saturday.
the Reason why there will not be nummerpiger to the fight is to be held in Saudi Arabia, as the country bought the fight for 70 million dollars, equivalent to about 470 million Danish kroner, and thus, among other things, beat New York in the fight to get boksebraget.
It is a decision which for some will certainly be welcomed, as they believe that nummerpiger is such an old tradition, as bokseverdenen ought to part with no matter where, there will be bokset, while others would probably question why the big event to be held in Saudi Arabia, if it means that you have to compromise with the sport's traditions.
There will also be some female boxers in the opvarmningskampene due to the same laws.
the 30-year-old Anthony Joshua is fighting to win its four sværvægtsmesterskaber back from the 30-year-old Andy Ruiz Jr. that beat the otherwise unbeaten briton the 1. June of this year.
Before their first showdown had Joshua a shoal at 22-0, where he had won 21 of his fights by knockout. Andy Ruiz Jr. had in the course of his career in boxing 32 wins and a defeat before the match.
Ruiz Jr. won the showdown on a technical knockout after 7. rounds, and since the only defeat Ruiz Jr. 've had were on point, is mexicaneren therefore never been knockoutet in his career.
What will Anthony Joushua probably try to make on Saturday night. The two have not bokset a match since their encounter the 1. June, so that is loaded in the kakkeloven to something of a boxing match.Updated Date: 04 December 2019, 09:00
