Amateur boxing is a variant of boxing practised at the collegiate level , at the Olympic Games , Pan American Games and Commonwealth Games , as well as many associations.

Men's senior bouts changed in format from four two-minute rounds to three three-minute rounds on January 1, This type of competition prizes point-scoring blows, based on number of clean punches landed, rather than physical power. Also, this short format allows tournaments to feature several bouts over several days, unlike professional boxing , where fighters rest several months between bouts. A referee monitors the fight to ensure that competitors use only legal blows a belt worn over the torso represents the lower limit of punches — any boxer repeatedly landing "low blows" is disqualified.
