Boxing is a combat-based sport where competitors throw punches at each other in an attempt to render their opponent unable to continue the fight. Boxing as a sport is highly regulated to increase player safety but remains one of the most exciting sports with the highest stakes. Players are divided into weight classes, suit up in protective gear, and enter the boxing ring for matches. The typical boxing match is anywhere from 3 to 12 rounds, with each round taking place for about three minutes. Players win by gaining the most points or by knocking out their opponent.
