Marquess of Queensberry Rules

The Marquess of Queensberry rules is a code of generally accepted rules in the sport of boxing.

The Queensberry rules are intended for use in both professional and amateur boxing matches, thus separating it from the less popular American Fair Play Rules, which were strictly intended for amateur matches. In popular culture the term is sometimes used to refer to a sense of sportsmanship and fair play.
