I think I am becoming more interested in the wrapping/taping of the hands as a boxing ritual. There are specific instructions that relate to a variety of wrapping techniques. However, the method of choice belongs to the individual and institutes a particular ritual that is connected to the athlete him/herself. Also, hand wrapping is a supervised activity in the context of a professional bout (to make sure no contraband is inserted), automatically making it a performative act.
