Boxing Overview

About

Boxing is a stand-up combat sport where fighters use gloved fists to punch the front and sides of the upper body of their opponent. The fight or bout takes place in a square ring and is held over a number of rounds. The winner is determined by judges decision or by knockout. A knockout is the term used when one fighter can not continue, or it considered unsafe to do so by the referee, doctor or coaches.

Training

There are many gyms across the country dedicated to the art. They range from the back yard shed through to modern day gyms with extensive facilities. Gyms are not an area that you can judge a book by its cover however. There are world champions coming out of certain back yards. If you’re looking for a place to train for yourself or your kids be sure to look beyond the bling. Talk to the coaches, learn about other fighters that train there.

Pathways

Gyms affiliated with their respective state association under Boxing Australia have pathways available for amateur boxers. By competing in certain tournaments, boxers can earn the opportunity to join state and national teams. There are also development opportunities available for upcoming talent.
