A boxer (or female boxer) must have full control of her movements (foot and fist), to perform precise and effective movements.
Hitting is not enough, as you must always have a goal in mind.

Differentiate female boxing and male boxing in combat sports
Man versus woman in the ring: the same passion.
Between strategy, tactics or aggressiveness, without a doubt, you wonder what distinguishes women’s boxing from men’s boxing. Normal, because men’s boxing is advertised more often than women’s boxing: it is easier to quote a world champion than a professional boxer. Therefore, it is important to know the advantages of female boxing , especially compared to male boxing. Similar sports disciplines, but with different stories and goals.
Boxing is a part of combat sports for good reason: in addition to some variants that can be practiced with bare hands, most are performed with specific boxing equipment , for men and women. We find, for example, the following essential elements:
Coquilla (for men, of course)
Accessories: punching bag, punching ball, rope …
The practitioners of this sport are mostly men (65% of those registered in the Spanish Federation), but it all depends on the type of boxing. Therefore, female and male boxing have their peculiarities.
The men are real competitors, like Mayweather or Mike Tyson, heavyweights who rush to attack their opponent. Kung fu, kick, UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) … they prefer intense contact sports.
For this, intensive physical preparation is necessary : weight lifting, bodybuilding, diet, everything is good to become the best of fighters.
Women are great competitors too: with champion Myriam Lamare in 2004. It was the first year that women’s boxing was featured at the Olympics.
However, 80% of women report doing educational or recreational boxing , that is, with an emphasis on other disciplines, such as fitness , self-defense or running .
While for men, the goal is still victory in the ring, for women, victory lies in other aspects: losing volume, losing weight, toning, sculpting the body, being more dynamic … There are so many objectives … However, they are as valid as the victories obtained in the ring.
