Boxing was a recreational Earth sport. One who participated in this sport was called a boxer. (TNG: "Brothers")

Boxing consisted of two people in a square ring surrounded by ropes. The object was to defeat the opponent on points or by knock-out. In general the Marquess of Queensberry Rules were followed. (DS9: "Q-Less")

Boxing was taught at Starfleet Academy. Chakotay learned to box as a cadet and was instructed by Boothby. (VOY: "The Fight") After being injured from a plasma discharge while piloting the Delta Flyer in a graviton ellipse, Chakotay woke up claiming that "it feels like I went ten rounds with an Andorian." Tom Paris corrected him, stating that it was "more like twenty." (VOY: "One Small Step")

In 2369, Q challenged Benjamin Sisko, Commander of Deep Space 9, to a boxing contest and lost. Q created a boxing ring in Quark's and referred to fisticuffs and pugilism before he lost this fight. (DS9: "Q-Less")

The script for this scenes include commentaries about the boxer's dresses, ca. 1900 and that Q seemed like Gentleman Jim Corbett, a famous US boxer.

Known boxers Edit

Carlos Palomino, who portrayed Chakotay's holographic Terrellian sparring partner in "The Fight", was the WBA Welterweight champion from 1976 to 1979.
