Boxing Injuries

Boxing injuries are different than other sports injuries. Most boxing injuries involved blows to the head, which are illegal in other sports. Boxing injuries are commonplace for professional boxers.

Amateurs don't experience the amount or severity of boxing injuries that the pros do. Boxing injuries are accepted as "part of the game" when it comes to professional boxing. Cuts, bruises, scrapes and minor bleeding are all expected injuries that one may anticipate while entering the ring.

The more severe boxing injuries like brain trauma and detached retina are risks that boxers decide to take when entering the ring and at the same time are risks, which with they hope they are never faced.

Since amateur boxers have more padding, protection and go fewer rounds than the pros do, it is the professional boxer who is most at risk for boxing injuries. Besides minor injuries, head and brain injuries are the most common injuries that boxers face. When a boxer is knocked out or "out of his feet" he has suffered a concussion.

Over time, multiple punches to the head can cause a case of "punch drunkenness" in a fighter who exhibits signs of inhibited thinking ability, headaches, blurred vision, or memory loss. In more serious cases, a boxer can be killed by a blow to the head. Who can forget November 13, 1982 when Ray Mancini hit South Korean challenger Duk Koo Kim with a crushing right hand that would send him into a coma and end his life 5 days later?

Another common head trauma boxing injury involves receiving a blow that causes a detached retina. Having a detached retina involves surgical repair to the eye and abstinence from boxing. The most famous case is that of "Sugar" Ray Leonard who decided to continue boxing despite having eye surgery and risk blindness with every bout. Some other boxing injuries involving the head include broken cheekbone, jaw, eye sockets and cauliflower ear.

Boxing injuries related to the abdomen are also quite common with professional boxers. Broken ribs, ruptured spleens and damaged livers are all more common than one would think. Besides being extremely painful and taking a long time to heal, a broken rib can be quite dangerous, in that, it can actually puncture a lung.

Having a ruptured spleen is also quite dangerous since the spleen will bleed quite profusely when damaged and can lead to a quick death if not attended to promptly. The liver is a more robust organ than the spleen, but a direct hit can cause internal bleeding as well. It is important that immediate medical attention be sought if liver damage is suspected.

Shoulder, hand and wrist injuries often occur to boxers inside the ring and while training. A heavy bag injury or injury due to a sparing partner can cause a significant setback to a boxer's career. In addition, freak accidents to these prone areas can lead to premature termination of a boxing career.

Boxing injuries come in many different varieties. From cuts, scrapes and bruises to brain damage and death and everything in-between, boxing by its very nature is the most violent of sports. Every precaution needs to be taken to make sure that boxing injuries don't occur and when they do, that they receive immediate medical attention to lessen the severity as much as possible.
