If you're looking for the training modes, go to Boxing (training).

Boxing is one of the five games featured in Wii Sports. The objective of Boxing is to reduce your opponent's health meter and get a T.K.O. to win the match. To get a T.K.O. the player must weaken the opponent and then knock him/her on the ground. The opponent must stay on the ground for 10 seconds to win the round. The player has 3 rounds to accomplish this. If either player/CPU can't T.K.O the other during the three rounds, a decision will be made post-match to determine who the winner will be based on their performance.

In Wii Sports, all males are shirtless and wearing boxing shorts with a white stripe. All females wear white tank tops and wear boxing shorts with a white stripe.

Gameplay

Gameplay involves holding the Wii Remote and Nunchuck like Boxing gloves and thrusting the controllers as if punching an opponent.

You can unlock the silver gloves when you defeat Matt with the normal gloves. To use the silver gloves, you can do this: before Boxing, you need to hold the 1 Button, and when the Boxing game starts, you'll have the silver gloves.

Strategies

  • Try to get a clear shot to the front, then come around the side.
  • Move back and forth and when your opponent's fist moves in slow motion, strike them.
  • Dodge whenever you can so you don't get hit.

Wii Sports Club

Boxing returns as a sport in Wii Sports Club with many changes. The outside of the ring has changed to seat more people and there are now assistants cheering for the playings beside the ring and before a new round starts, there is a cutscene where they give the Mii water and spray them. The first CPU is Matt and the Champion is Pit.

The outfits of the Miis have changed, Miis now wear boots, and now all Miis wear vests regardless of gender. All CPU Mii vests are gray.

However, there's a slight difference between the vests depending on their gender:

- The male Mii vest has a low-cut top, revealing the upper chest a little bit.

- The female Mii vest has a round neckline, which completely covers their upper chest.

These Miis only appear as coaches in boxing. Note that some of these Miis have levels in other sports or appear as tennis partners.

Trivia

  • This was shown in the 2014 movie Boyhood, where Mason was staying with his stepfather.
    • This was also shown in The Big Bang Theory (season 1, episode 15) when Leonard and Howard are seen playing together.
  • It’s unknown why not all females appear in this sport.
    • There are only nine females that play boxing in Wii Sports.
    • There seem to be no males in Wii Sports that don't play Boxing. This is because the list of Miis that don't play Boxing is full of females.
    • Violence against women may have been the reason why Nintendo decided to remove 21 of the 30 female Miis.
  • It is possible to get a draw in this sport, however it is extremely rare.
    • The ways that a draw happens is if there's a double knockout or both players get the same score in the decision.
  • On the replay, it is visible that the Miis are off the ground a bit.

    Nick appears to be off the ground here. Notice how there is a gap between his legs and his shadow.

  • In Wii Sports, after you defeat the champion, you will face random opponents.
  • In Wii Sports, the maximum skill level you can achieve is 3124.
  • Unlike Wii Sports Boxing, you or the opponent can end up getting dizzy in Wii Sports Club Boxing after receiving a certain amount of punches. During this state, the guard is dropped and all the stunned boxer can do is dodge.
    • The health meter also depletes with every hit you give your opponent in Wii Sports Club. In Wii Sports, your opponent needs a certain amount of hits for his or her health meter to deplete.
    • The transitions between rounds also changed. Instead of going straight to the next round, they'll show the three coaches shaking a bottle of water in front of the player, spraying the player with a spray can, etc. After that, a Mii with grey clothes will hold up a sign saying what round it is. They didn't have that in the original Wii Sports.
  • In Wii Sports Club, the Mii's boxing gloves can actually go through their head.

  • The spectators in Wii Sports Club will always be randomly generated Miis.
  • Misaki was originally made to be a Pro in Wii Sports Boxing, as shown in a video by IGN. However, she was later scrapped.
