Boxing is a combat sport in which two athletes, wearing protective gloves, throw punches at each other for a predetermined amount of time in a boxing ring. A boxer is declared the winner when the opponent is down and does not resume within 10 counts. Failing this, the winner is declared through a scoring system.
It is a skilled sport that tests athletes’ ability to fight safely and under specific rules. In return, it develops athletes’ reflexes and speed, and physical and mental strength.
