Corbett-Fitzsimmons rematch
Jack Johnson ducking Langford

It's probably been around as long as the sport.

Boxers have always been "ducked", or "avoided", due to being too risky in proportion to the financial rewards of facing them.

Since boxing began, no one wants to face a guy that will beat you up

Sugar Shane Mosley
Mike Tyson
Tommy Hearns
Marvin Hagler
Muhammad Ali
Joe Louis
Joe Frazier
Sonny Liston
George Foreman
Roy Jones Jr.
Riddick Bowe
Evander Holyfield
Lennox Lewis

etc.
u mad bro?

What action was more symbolic of ducking than what Bowe did?
Not saying ducking isn't as old as boxing itself, but that throwing your title in the trash, that's taking it to another level.

How about taking your title to Hollywood for 3 years?

more like the king of ducking.

As a champion, he ducked his 4 best opponents.
In his defense, he did beat 3 of them before he became champion

Ducking is in the eye of the beholder...


People who don't like certain fighters will always claim thy ducked someone. There's generally a lot more to it than meets the eye. For instance, people who claim Lewis was a ducker are simply mad because the worst version of him beat a young, hungry Vitali Klitschko on his best night.


Most people like to claim RJJ ducked a bunch of people. That's equally subjective, and mostly depends on what country the person you ask is from.


Same with Floyd, Pac, and others.

You know very little about boxing in general if you say ducking started with Mike Tyson.

I'm not trying to shit on you or nothing... So don't take me as one of these boxing snobs who knows everything about everything when it comes to boxing history.

The term 'Ducking' actually comes from the much sought after bout between Middleweights Hermann Dück and his number 1 ranked challenger Fred Lansbury during 1867 where the bout was all but arranged only for Hermann Dück to pull out with only 3 days to go before the fight after claiming "he didn't fancy his chances" after watching Lansbury spar the previous day. Thus the term 'Ducking' was born.
