Questions

What and where is the BoxRec global ID?

The BoxRec global ID or ID is the unique ID of the person, event, bout, etc. It can be found in the URL bar. For people it can also be found on their page.

examples:

(Person) Vasiliy Lomachenko - http://boxrec.com/en/boxer/659771. The BoxRec global ID is 659771.

(Bout) Terence Crawford vs. Amir Khan - http://boxrec.com/en/event/778793/2299385. The BoxRec bout ID is 778793/2299385

(Event) Golden Boy May 4th 2019 Event - http://boxrec.com/en/event/781894. The BoxRec event ID is 781894

Why is there global ID and ID?

I took the safe approach and assumed that there may be some difference between the two. There doesn't seem to be but better safe than sorry.

Is using this software legal?

When this software was initially written, the Terms and Conditions on BoxRec did not include anything about web scraping.

BoxRec had updated their Terms and Conditions sometime in the middle of 2018 to include that you may not use software to extract data from BoxRec.

Web scraping on wikipedia states under legal issues "The legality of web scraping varies across the world. In general, web scraping may be against the terms of use of some websites, but the enforceability of these terms is unclear".

Conclusion: It is unclear. What you do with this package though could very well be illegal.
