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 objective of Boxing is to reduce your opponent's health meter and get a K.O. to win the match. To get a 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 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 their favorite color and a white stripe. All females wear white tank tops and wear boxing shorts with a white stripe.
Gameplay involves holding the Wii Remote and Nunchuck like Boxing gloves and thrusting the controllers as if punching an opponent.

- 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.
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.
- 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. The player and CPU will sit using different poses, depending on how many times they've been knocked out.
These Miis only appear as coaches in boxing.
- 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.
- There are only nine females that play Boxing in Wii Sports.
- 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.
- In Wii Sports, after you defeat the champion, you will face random opponents.
- In Wii Sports, the maximum confirmed skill level you can achieve without hacks is 3124.
- In Wii Sports Club, the Mii's boxing gloves can 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.
- In Wii Sports Club, if you punch your opponent just when the bell rings and they get knocked down, the announcer will not say "Down!" or start to count to 10. Instead it will go to the next round cutscene or the decision with the opponent knocked down.
- In Wii Sports Club, if you skip the replay when a Mii is being punched or just before a Mii is punched, the eyes will not go from open to closed and vice versa while the screen fades.
- Even though Ryan appears as the first opponent you face off against in Boxing, Ryan is not actually the lowest-skilled CPU Mii in Boxing whereas according to Internal Data, the 21 CPU Miis who are absent from Boxing are ranked lower than Ryan in terms of Boxing Skill Level. This would mean that if the 21 CPU Miis who are absent from Boxing did play that sport, Ryan would not the starter.
- Boxing is one of the 3 sports in Wii Sports that use Mii Parade Miis, the other 2 sports being Tennis and Bowling. In this case, they are shown to replace the generated Miis in the Boxing audience.
