Make no bones about it, boxing is a physically tough sport. Along with that comes the unfortunate byproduct from hours of bag work, sparring, roadwork and trading punches. The result sometimes means dealing with injuries. Although injuries can usually be avoided, they are going to happen…in training and in competition. Whether they are caused by trauma or overuse, boxing is a high intensity, full-contact sport, and all fighters pay some sort of physical toll.
Ironically enough, even though most of the general public sees boxing as being brutal and painful, most common injuries happen during training and not in the actual fight itself. Sore muscles, sprains, strains, and all kinds of pains are the things that most fighters develop in the gym and simply learn to live with.
