Just a little fun trash-talk.

Finding sources for boxing in this time period (1800-1812ish) was kind of a pain! Most of the sources I could find were mid-late 1700s or nearly a hundred years later, so there was some extrapolating happening here. Mixed-gender boxing was uncommon during the early 19th century but not unheard of, especially in the largely-informal world of street fights. The rule about holding coins in your hands to stop from clawing out eyes started to become prominent during this time period and I found sources for it especially with the rise in popularity in the sport in the later 1800s.
