Boxing is a full contact sport that consists of two people fighting each other with their fists, and with the exception of specialized styles, kicking is not allowed. Each match is broken into rounds, about 12, and can be won with a knockout, a technical knockout, or a tally of judges’ scores. There is no hitting below the belt, biting, wrestling, or striking with any part of the arm except the hand. Boxers are divided into weight classes, enabling them to be paired against opponents of a similar size and weight. The 17 weight classes range from minimumweight, weighing in at 105-108 lbs, to heavyweight, weighing in at 200 lbs and over.
