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

Boxing is one of the five games featured in the Wii Sports series. The player must knockout their opponent win the match by lowering their health meter to where it is empty. If either player/CPU can'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.


Gameplay

The player must hit their opponent to deal damage, while also being defensive and evasive by blocking and dodging. They deal more damage if they hit their opponent in the head, and vice versa. They must lower their opponent’s health meter until it is all black/empty. When knocked out, the opponent must stay on the ground for the player to win, they have three rounds to do this. It is possible to get a draw in this sport. This requires the CPU (or other player) to knock out the player while also being knocked out at the same time. They also need to have the same countdown.

Controls

  • Hold the Wii Remote vertically, with the Nunchuk attached and swing them forward to strike and sideways to dodge.

Reward for beating the Champion

The player(s) can unlock the Silver Gloves when they defeat Matt. To use the silver gloves, they need to hold the 1 button, before a match they will have them on when the match begins.

Strategies:

  • The player(s) should try to get a clear shot to the front, then come around the side.
  • When dodging, their opponent's glove will move in slow motion, where there is an opportunity to strike. Dodging in general helps.

Gender differences

All males are shirtless and wear boxing shorts with their favorite color and a white stripe. All females wear white tank tops and wear with the same attired shorts as the males.

Wii Sports Club

A typical boxing match in 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 athletes. 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.

Gameplay differences:

  • The player and their opponent can end up in a dizzy state after receiving a certain amount of punches to the head. During this state, their guard is dropped and all they can do is dodge.
  • Either the player or their the opponent will get up or not is random. In Wii Sports, whether they or their opponent will get up or not is influenced by how hard they were hit in a row.
  • The health meter also depletes with every hit they give their opponent. In Wii Sports, their opponent needs to meet hidden criteria for their 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 bottles of water before round 2 and spraying both Miis before round 3. After that, a the referee Mii will hold up a sign saying what round it is.

Reward for beating the Champion

The player will be given the Flaming Gloves upon beating Pit.

Strategies

When the game starts, Pit (The Wii U Boxing Champion) will usually try to attack you first, once he tries to punch, punch him immediately right after, be careful not to do a hook or an uppercut because he will attack you right after you do so, and could lead to you either getting dizzy ingame or a knockdown. Always try to punch him when he tries to attack you, even if he is dizzy.

Gender differences

The outfits of the Miis have changed, they now wear boots, and now all of them wear vests regardless of gender, though males have a section of their vest lowered and females having a more heightened one. All CPU Mii vests are colored grey.
