oa South African Journal of Sports Medicine - Poor protection a major cause: Hand injuries in boxing

 

Abstract

Collision sports result in injuries to a variable degree, and boxing, because of the great violence involved in the contact, should have a high rate of serious injury. However, injuries sustained to body parts excluding head injuries are seldom severe. All boxers participating in a contest have two types of protection for their hands: (a) bandages and tape (b) gloves.
