Boxing is a combat sport in which two boxers, of similar weight, fight each other using their fists. Boxing is typically supervised by a referee engaged in during a series of one- to three-minute intervals called rounds.

There are three ways to win in Boxing:

  • if the opponent is knocked out and unable to get up before the referee counts to ten seconds (a Knockout, or KO)

  • if the opponent is deemed too injured to continue (a Technical Knockout, or TKO)

  • if there is no stoppage of the fight before an agreed number of rounds, a winner is determined either by the referee's decision or by judges' scorecards
