About the only effect gladiators have on us today is in the "sword and sandal" movies, or the footwear called "gladiator sandals. Some people liken gladiatorial combats with the present day sport of boxing, but the ancients had boxing and it developed along its own lines, with nothing to do with gladiators except perhaps some of the footwork and jabbing.
