What is a Boxing Medical?

A boxing medical is required for those wanting to participate in competitive boxing, even for amateur fights. A medical examination of boxers typically consists of tests including:

  • Height and weight measurements
  • Blood pressure check
  • Eye test
  • Ear, nose, throat check including teeth
  • Full body check including abdomen, limbs, nervous system
  • Urinalysis
  • Family history
  • Medical history
  • Sugar and protein

Will a boxer’s blood be tested for any issues?

Blood tests are not normally required as part of a boxing medical, but if the clinician feels that they are necessary, the checks normally conducted include HIV, Hepatitis B Surface Antigen, Hepatitis C Antibody, and other STDs. 

If you are wanting to get involved in boxing, or are looking to spar or fight competitively, we can help you with your boxing medical requirements. Whether you are a keen amateur or looking to step up to fighting competitively or are looking to get a licence to step up to the pro ranks, our boxing medicals with qualified professionals are just what you need.

Why do you need a Boxing Medical?

The reason for a boxing medical is to check that there are not any underlying issues that could put the boxer at risk during training sessions, sparring or during an organised bout. Knowing that there are no health issues will give the boxer confidence that their body can stand up to the rigours of boxing training, sparring and contests.

Do I need a medical if I just want to spar?

Anyone wanting to take part in sparring – defined as boxing training  where the blows are delivered to the target area with significant but reduced force – must have a medical with a boxing-registered doctor or their own GP. Sparring is not permitted for those under the age of 10 years old.

What if I want to get involved in actual fights?

If you need a licence to fight in the UK, you will have to undergo a medical examination to determine if you are fit to fight. A review of your medical history will be undertaken, along with an eye examination and urinalysis.

What are the medical requirements of those wanting to box professionally?

If you are looking to apply for a Professional Boxers License you will be required to undertake a full medical on application as well as annually for the duration of the license. It is also a requirement that the applicant has an MRI/MRA scan on application and every year they have the licence. Also, to ensure the health and safety of a competitor at an event, the boxer needs to undertake a pre-contest medical.

What age is it too late to start boxing?

Generally, there isn’t an age too old to start boxing as long as you are physically fit enough to do so. However, as you get older there are increasing risks to your health if you get involved with contact sports. For this reason, England Boxing have made it a requirement to undertake a medical yearly.

What is the cost and how long does it take?

Our GPs are specially trained to complete England Boxing medicals in our state of the art, modern medical centres. The cost of an England Boxing medical is £59 including VAT, and can normally be completed within a 15-20 minute GP consultation.
