Boxing is a combat sport in which two people, usually wearing protective gloves, throw punches at each other for a predetermined set of time in a boxing ring.
In the event that both fighters gain equal scores from the judges, the fight is considered a draw (professional boxing).
In Olympic boxing, due to the fact that a winner must be declared, in the case of a draw - the judges use technical criteria to choose the most deserving winner of the bout.
The Band continues to grow, and is currently under the direction of Peter Marsh and assistant director Terry Lee Lewis.
The Lewistown Community Band is a traditional concert band made up of brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments.
Located in Lewistown Pennsylvania, the bands of Lewistown have an illustrious history, dating back to 1829 when the first canal boat, "The Juniata", arrived in Lewistown to the shouts of the populace and the cheering music of the Lewistown Band, which was onboard.
During the coming decades many businesses, such as Standard Steel, and organizations, such as fire companies and boy scouts, had their musicians unite to provide appropriate music for community events and celebrations.
It was not until the late 16th century that boxing re-surfaced in London.
Records of Classical boxing activity disappeared after the fall of the Western Roman Empire when the wearing of weapons became common once again and interest in fighting with the fists waned.
As the wearing of swords became less common, there was renewed interest in fencing with the fists.
The sport would later resurface in England during the early 16th century in the form of bare-knuckle boxing sometimes referred to as prizefighting.
The first documented account of a bare-knuckle fight in England appeared in 1681 in the London Protestant Mercury, and the first English bare-knuckle champion was James Figg in 1719.
