The National Sporting Club (NSC) of London, England, was one of the earliest boxing authorities. This private club amended 12 Queensberry Rules, with nine specific criteria, such as designating role of officials; devised a system of scoring bouts; and enabled the referee to determine who won. In 1909 a ratification vote by the NSC recognized the eight traditional weight classes.
