While in amateur boxing, there are 3 to 5 rounds of boxing and similar to professional boxing, time period of each round is 3 minutes with one minute of rest.

Referees Decision

For every fight every fighter is delegated a corner that's largely used during intervals by trainers and managers. When a fighter is knocked down, the referee starts a count of ten and if the fighter stays on the ground after the count then another boxer is deemed victorious by knockout. During the count, another fighter is supposed to remain in a neutral area that does not include the corners.

Another method of deciding a winner is by a points system that is preserved by judges.

There are certain mandatory gears that a professional and amateur fighter must wear prior to stepping in a ring. A boxer must wear hand wraps inside the boxing gloves and proper boxing trunks and shoes. Finally, a mouthpiece to protect the jaw as well as an athletic cup to protect the groin area below the belt. But the main difference that separates amateur and professional boxing gear is the head gear. It's mandatory for a fighter to wear head gear in amateur boxing.

Types of Boxing Tournaments

Boxing tournaments are held regularly all over the world in different cities and countries. This is a great way for boxers to entertain their fans and get them interested in boxing. Professional boxers engage in friendly competitions with their opponents and fans to win or lose. The most famous of these tournaments is the world heavyweight championship. However, there are many more boxing tournaments which can be watched on pay per view television.

Boxing tournaments are divided into three divisions - amateur boxing, professional boxing and super lightweight boxing. Super lightweight boxing is also known as" women's boxing". The amateur boxing tournaments are held to test the skills of amateurs and younger children.
