Boxing in West Central London
Boxing clubs are firm believers in the power of sport as a vehicle for personal and social development. It brings psychological as well as physical benefits to individuals; increases social cohesion by bringing together people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds in a common interest; and fosters positive youth development by building confidence, discipline and life skills. It is for this reason that they see sport, and particularly the sport of boxing, as a pathway to a healthier community.
Whether you want to get fit to fight or just fit, take your training to the next level with boxing clubs. A boxing match typically consists of a determined number of three-minute rounds, a total of up to 12 rounds (formerly 15). A minute is typically spent between each round with the fighters in their assigned corners receiving advice and attention from their coach and staff.
If a boxer is knocked to the ground and fails to get up within a count of 10 from the referee, the bout is over. Bouts can also be won or lost due to retirement or disqualification. A referee can also decide to stop the fight at any point if they think a boxer is unfit to continue. A referee is in the ring with the two boxers. The wellbeing of the boxer is the primary concern of the referee, who also ensures that all hits are legal, provides the count when a boxer is down, and has the power to stop the fight at any time.
