Arlovskis Chin - Allow tripsYes, the old time boxing rules that allowed wrestling with takedowns rom the waist up.
I had no idea that was a thing. Did it just score points or were you allowed to keep hitting once down on the ground?
IIRC, in the first set of official boxing rules, you could strike with any part of of your body, and you could grapple above the waist. You could not strike a downed fighter, and he was considered down if anything other than the soles of his feet touched the ground. Rounds were not timed, but when a fighter was down, the round ended, and he had 30 seconds to get back to his feet at a predetermined spot, or "scratch", (hence the expression "up to scratch"). So yes, you could throw a man, but you were not allowed to hit him while he was down.
