Later boxing spread to Europe during the Middle Ages with bare-knuckle boxing becoming popular in England around 1719. The first modern boxing rules were developed in 1867 by British heavyweight champion John Sholto Douglas, 8th Marquess of Queensberry. These rules made boxing more humane and safer, which allowed it to become increasingly popular worldwide.
