Commonwealth Games

The Commonwealth Games is an international, multi-sport event involving athletes from the Commonwealth of Nations. The event was first held in 1930 and has taken place every four years ever since (except 1942 and 1946 which were cancelled). The Games are described as the third largest multi-sport event in the world after the Olympic Games and the Asian Games.Boxing is one of the few sports to have featured on every Commonwealth Games Programme. Glasgow 2014 was the first time that Women’s Boxing was included on the sport programme at a Commonwealth Games. Women athletes competed in the Flyweight (51kg), Lightweight (60kg) and Middleweight (75kg) categories. Medals were fought over four rounds of two minutes.

Male athletes in ten weight categories fought for a medal over three rounds in a “knockout” bout format.
