With just 1,000 days to go until the Opening Ceremony of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, the latest Games Partners' Progress Report confirms this major sporting event is "on track and on budget".
The report illustrates that good progress is being made across all areas and that with a little under three years to go, Scotland is already reaping the economic and social benefits of hosting the Games.
Boxing is one of the most physically tough and demanding sports on the Games programme, which it has featured in since 1930.
Historically England and Canada have been dominant forces in this sport, with Scotland also winning its fair share of medals. Look out however for rising stars from the African nations challenging for Glasgow Gold, in what is set to be a real knockout.
Male athletes in 10 weight categories will fight it out, over three rounds, for ten medals in an Olympic style format across eight days of fierce competition.
The competition will take place in the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) Precinct. The SECC will serve as the largest precinct venue for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games and will host several sports. Opened in 1985, the venue is nestled on the banks of the River Clyde and is one of Scotland's most visited venues.
