Boxing is a combat sport in which two fighters hit each other using only their fists while wearing a pair of big puffy gloves. The fight takes place in a ring, which is actually a square. Boxers get points for every punch landed successfully.
Amateur (Olympic) boxing as a part of the sport programme of the 2nd European Games has a complex set of rules, but the basics are fairly simple. It is a single-elimination tournament with each men's bout consisting of three rounds of three minutes each and each women's bout consisting of four rounds of two minutes each. The winner in each weight class wins the Games.
