Boxing also referred to as pugilism or the gentleman’s sport, because of its combative nature, is a contest of strength, reflexes and endurance where two opponents engage each other through punches usually in gloved hands. Professional bouts (fights) which are usually longer than amateur bouts have rounds ranging from ten to twelve rounds. Unlike amateur boxing, headgear is not allowed in professional fights. A technical knockout(K.O) is awarded in the event that a fighter lands a punch that opens a cut on his opponent thus been deemed not fit to carry on by a doctor because of the cut.Cutmen are therefore employed to treat cuts in between rounds so that the fighter can carry on despite the cut. If a boxer quits or his corner stops the fight then a K.0 victory is also awarded. Contrary to amateur boxing, professional male boxers have to maintain a bare chest.
