🥊Boxing

For fans, nothing is better than watching two professional boxers in the ring. Entertainment, drama and raw emotion are packed into every three minute round where anything can, and often does, happen. These qualities are even more profound when it comes to the best and most famous boxers fighting it out for championship belts. 

The entertainment factor with boxing comes as soon as the promoters reach an agreement and announce a new fight. From here, top level boxing contests attract huge hype and plenty of interest during training camps, press conferences and weigh-ins, when the boxers go head-to-head.  

The anticipation continues to build until fight night, which makes having a ticket all the more special. Most of the top fights are broadcast via Pay-Per-View channels, but there’s nothing quite like the opportunity to attend in person, soaking up the ringside atmosphere and watching the action unfold. 

The biggest boxing events can take place in football stadiums and purpose built arenas. Even for the biggest venues, there’s often a huge demand for tickets. At Zenseats, we work hard to deliver the best boxing ticket options and packages available, keen to provide fight fans with access to the best experience. 

Rising to Fame & Glory  

While there are some boxers who enter the sport directly as professionals, the large majority typically learn their trade via the amateur scene first. Here, they gain vital experience of the fight game before taking the next steps towards professionalism. 

Given that boxing is an Olympic sport, many of the most famous and legendary boxers have competed at the Summer Games. Before the iconic Muhammad Ali was known as ‘The Greatest’ in boxing, he went by the name of Cassius Clay and fought at the 1960 Rome Games, winning a gold medal in the light heavyweight division. He went on to become one of the most popular and successful boxers of all time, captivating audiences around the globe with his unique personality and fearsome abilities. 

Sugar Ray Leonard, Anthony Joshua and Amir Khan all won gold at the Olympics too. Curiously, 19 year old Floyd Mayweather, could only claim a bronze medal. This 1996 Atlanta Games defeat would be Mayweather’s last ever defeat in boxing. Interestingly, at the same 1996 Olympics, Wladimir Klitschko won gold in the men’s Super-Heavyweight. 

At the 1988 Summer Games, rising star Lennox Lewis won the super heavyweight gold for Canada, defeating none other than Riddick Bowe. Both went on to enjoy great professional careers, although Lewis would achieve the most success, reaching the peak when he unified all four main heavyweight titles in 1999 after beating Evander Holyfield in Las Vegas. 

To this day, the legendary Lennox Lewis is the last heavyweight to hold all four heavyweight title belts at the same time. More recently, Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua have held world heavyweight title belts, but have never held all four together. This is why a fight between the two is so anticipated!

Amateur boxing provided Frank Bruno with his pathway into the professional sport, after winning the English National Championships in 1980. While ‘Big Frank’ fought numerous memorable bouts, including contests against Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson (twice), he never landed a major title. But his personality and spirit did win the hearts of the British public, earning popularity that extended far beyond the boxing ring. 

Why is boxing so popular?   

Ever since boxing became a professional sport, the one-versus-one nature of contests has fascinated spectators around the world. Often referred to as ‘The Fight Game’ and ‘The Noble Art’ in sporting circles, boxing incorporates great skill and physical prowess, going beyond the simple objective of beating an opponent with knockout punches. 

As professional boxers rise through the ranks, they usually generate keen interest and gather fans, who then follow their pathway forward hoping for continued success. Whenever boxers form rivalries with opponents along the way, this adds further media excitement and appeal to upcoming bouts. 

Undoubtedly, title bouts usually attract the biggest attention, when boxers are challenging for the opportunity to reach the very pinnacle of their sport. This is made all the more iconic when the winners are presented with championship belts. Some of the most historic title fights are surrounded by their own unique folklore, which has only increased in the age of digital media. Now boxers can achieve global fame with a spectacular knockout blow. 

The possibility of anything happening is also appealing for fans, especially with the underdog stories that we frequently see. This kind of story resonates with fans, inspiring the sense of hope that with hard work and perseverance, anyone can achieve success.  

Titles & weight divisions   

There are numerous organisations in professional boxing, including many with national or continental focus, plus several global bodies that also sanction fights. However, there are four major organisations, recognised as being the most important and influential when it comes to sanctioning boxing contests and awarding championship titles. 

  • World Boxing Association (WBA) 
  • World Boxing Council (WBC) 
  • International Boxing Federation (IBF) 
  • World Boxing Organization (WBO) 

Although the names of the weight divisions can vary in different countries, all four of these bodies have the same weight classifications, which are used across both men’s and women’s professional boxing. 

There are eight main traditional or ‘glamour’ divisions, typically regarded as being the most important classifications. These are:

  • Heavyweight: Over 200 lb (90.7 kg) 
  • Light Heavyweight: 168–175 lb (76.2–79.4 kg) 
  • Middleweight: 154–160 lb (69.9–72.6 kg) 
  • Welterweight: 140–147 lb (63.5–66.7 kg) 
  • Lightweight: 130–135 lb (59.0–61.2 kg) 
  • Featherweight: 122–126 lb (55.3–57.2 kg) 
  • Bantamweight: 115–118 lb (52.2–53.5 kg) 
  • Flyweight: 108–112 lb (49.0–50.8 kg) 

Between the main weight categories, there are also ‘tweener divisions’ that have been established over the last century. 

Although many are now legitimate with official championship titles, it did take a long time for the top boxing authorities to fully embrace them all. These range from cruiserweight as the heaviest sitting in between heavyweight and light heavyweight, down to strawweight as the lightest. 

Whatever the championship titles and no matter the weight divisions, you can count on Zenseats to provide the best ticket options for the most appealing live boxing events. Keep an eye on our listings for the latest fight announcements and don't hesitate to reach out if you need help or advice.
