Boxing in Galway
Boxing, “The sweet science”, is a modern Olympic sport that takes place in a square-shaped "ring" between two athletes. The boxers look to outpoint the opponent by landing clean punches on the body and head without receiving more blows in return. In amateur boxing, points are scored by landing clean blows, regardless of their power. A boxer’s goal should be to outbox his opponent by landing numerous clean, effective blows rather than going for the knockout that may not happen. Amateur boxing can be used as a vehicle to instruct in sportsmanship, values of conditioning, positive release of frustrations and energies, in addition to building self-confidence .
