Although many perceive Boxing to be quite a brutal and dangerous sport medical evidence has shown that compared to other contact sports boxing is relatively safe. Indeed in 1996 the National Safety Council accident report ranked amateur boxing 23rd on its list of injury-producing sports and rated it the safest of all contact sports behind football, gymnastics and in-line skating.

As with all contact sports there are risks of injury with some more common than others depending on the type of sport. With boxing the focus is fist fighting wearing boxing gloves where blows are focused at the upper body and head. Naturally, this can lead to injury but rarely is there severe lasting damage. Along with bruising to the face, hands and ribs, the most common boxing injuries are Boxers Fractures, Carpal Bossing, Cuts (Lacerations), Shoulder Dislocation and Concussion.

This guide is aimed at the professional and amateur boxer and it explains each of these injuries with tips on diagnosis, prevention and recovery.
