Boxing and the Ohaus Boxing Scale
Boxing is a very popular combative sport in which two people, wearing protective gloves, throw punches at each other to score points by hitting an opponent cleanly or by knocking them out. Prior to the fight the boxers attend a weigh-in. The weigh-in takes place the day before the fight and the boxers stand on calibrated scales barefoot and without their gloves. ... During this later weigh-in, the fighter must weigh no more than 10 pounds (4.5 kg) above the weight limit for the fight.
The bout takes place in a boxing ring and comprises a set number of rounds, typically three minutes long with a minute break in between. The number of rounds is determined by the rules of the competition. The winner either achieves the highest number of points or stops their opponent during the fight or by either a knockout or they are unable to continue.
Boxing has also become a very popular fitness trend as with non-competitive sparring for people wanting to lose weight or simply get into shape.
