Boxing is a combat sport where two people compete in a boxing ring by punching one another for a determined number of rounds or until the referee decides that one competitor can no longer continue the fight. Building upon the fundamental usage of hand-to-hand combat performed by humans throughout history, boxing today has evolved into a regulated sport that is performed globally in amateur tournaments and the Olympics alike. Boxing matches are made up one to three minute rounds with the number of rounds being determined by the stated rules of that particular type of bout (amateur or professional). If a fight lasts until all of the allocated rounds are completed, the winner of the bout is calculated by tallying the judges’ scorecards from each round. Boxers fight with a variety of specific fighting styles that commonly include ‘classic’ boxers, boxer-punchers, counter punchers, brawlers, and swarmers.

How many rounds are in a boxing match?

Professional boxing bouts are capped at a maximum of twelve rounds for title fights. For the safety of lesser experienced fighters, boxing matches are often limited to four, six, eight, or ten rounds instead of the maximum twelve.


How long is a boxing match?


Boxing matches last a maximum duration of 47 minutes if all twelve rounds are used. Each round in a boxing match is three minutes with a minute of rest between rounds one through eleven.

How long is a boxing round?

Boxing rounds are three minutes for men and two minutes for women. One minute is given between each round for the boxers to rest before continuing on to the next round.

Boxing Ropes
Side view detail elevation of the corner of a boxing ring measuring ring and rope heights and sizes

Boxing ropes are the perimeter guides and boundaries that gave shape to the competitive space of a boxing ring used for the sport of boxing. Attached to the four posts located at each corner of the boxing ring platform, the boxing rope border is made up of four individual parallel ropes pulled in tension from each turnbuckle. Additional rope spacers are distributed evenly around each side of the ring to prevent the ropes from slacking or spreading further apart if the tension lessens. Boxing ropes are commonly made with steel cables wrapped in soft padding and an outer vinyl sleeve that is available in a variety of colors and styles depending on the venue.

Boxing ring platforms are elevated 39.375” (100 cm) above the floor. The total height of the boxing ropes above the ring floor is 52.0” (132.1 cm) leading to an overall boxing ring height of 7’ 7.375” (232.1 cm). The bottom rope is spaced 16.0” (40.6 cm) from the ring floor with the other ropes spaced evenly at 12.0” (30.5 cm) from each other. Rope thicknesses range from 1”-1.625” (2.5-4 cm).
