Inaugurated in May 2000 with a database of 20,000 bouts, '''BoxRec.com''' (''Boxing Records Archive'') has grown by leaps and bounds, with a million bouts having been entered by 2005, and now some 1.7 million bouts to date. Its world-wide volunteer Editors scour magazines, record books, scrapbooks, and newspaper microfilm, attend boxing shows, and maintain contact with various boxing commissions throughout the world, to continually add old and new bouts. Presently they insert an average of 2,000 &quot;new&quot; entries each week into the BoxRec database. (The Editors believe that well under 50% of those bouts that ''can'' be documented have been entered so far into the BoxRec database; not to mention those undocumented bouts of the past that are forever lost.)
  
Inaugurated in Year 2000 with a database of 20,000 bouts, '''BoxRec.com''' (''Boxing Records Archive'') has grown by leaps and bounds, with over a million bouts entered by 2005. Its volunteer Editors scour magazines, record books, scrapbooks, and newspaper microfilm, attend boxing shows, and maintain contact with various boxing commissions throughout the world, to continually add old and new bouts. Its Editors are located in Europe; North, Central and South America; Australia; Asia; Africa; and elsewhere. Presently they insert an average of 3,000 &quot;new&quot; entries each week into the BoxRec database.

Unlike boxing record sources of the past, BoxRec.com actually cites the exact venues, referees, judges, official weights, knockout times, promoters, and descriptions of many bouts. However, the BoxRec database does not include amateur, bare-knuckle (pre-[[Marquess of Queensberry Rules]]) or exhibition bouts, although such matches might be mentioned in the boxer's BoxRec Wikipedia biography.

Revision as of 18:51, 18 December 2012

Inaugurated in May 2000 with a database of 20,000 bouts, BoxRec.com (Boxing Records Archive) has grown by leaps and bounds, with a million bouts having been entered by 2005, and now some 1.7 million bouts to date. Its world-wide volunteer Editors scour magazines, record books, scrapbooks, and newspaper microfilm, attend boxing shows, and maintain contact with various boxing commissions throughout the world, to continually add old and new bouts. Presently they insert an average of 2,000 "new" entries each week into the BoxRec database. (The Editors believe that well under 50% of those bouts that can be documented have been entered so far into the BoxRec database; not to mention those undocumented bouts of the past that are forever lost.)

Unlike boxing record sources of the past, BoxRec.com actually cites the exact venues, referees, judges, official weights, knockout times, promoters, and descriptions of many bouts. However, the BoxRec database does not include amateur, bare-knuckle (pre-Marquess of Queensberry Rules) or exhibition bouts, although such matches might be mentioned in the boxer's BoxRec Wikipedia biography.

After its launch in 2000 as a boxing record-only database, BoxRec gradually added new features--such as its Forum [1], computer-generated rankings, up-coming fight schedule [2], and its sister wiki-based encyclopedia here--to become one of the most-visited and authoritative boxing Web sites.


The BoxRec database is searchable by:

  • Name: Search for any boxer, manager, official or promoter to find their record to date.
  • Date: Learn all known bouts that occurred on a particular date, often-times including entire historical cards.
  • Location: Discover all bouts in the database for any country, region or town by year.
  • Title: Find championship matches--by commission or country, and division.
  • Ratings: BoxRec Ratings are computer-generated and re-calculated daily, integrating the new bouts inserted by the Editors into the database during the previous 24 hours. (How those ratings are calculated can be found here.)
  • Results: Boxing results from the past week.
  • Schedule: Learn what fights are up-coming.

Access to the BoxRec Boxing Wikipedia via Blue Book Icons

  • If you see this Book-closed.gif when visiting a BoxRec boxer's record, immediately below his profile, that means nothing has been entered so far into his "Wiki" biography. His biography page is empty.
  • But if you see this open book icon Book-open.gif, click on it to learn more about that boxer.
  • If you see a closed book icon Book-closed.gif to the far right of the page when visiting a BoxRec boxer's record page (Mike Tyson's, for example), or when searching precise dates (sample date), that means nothing has been entered so far about that fight.
  • But if you see the open book Book-open.gif, some text and/or images have been inserted about the fight. Click on the blue book to learn more about that fight. It will lead you back to this Wikipedia. Both the boxer and fight "blue book" icons are doors to the full Boxing Wikipedia; so once you're inside the Wiki, explore the other boxing-related pages and subjects besides those of boxers and fights.

Note: A BoxRec Editor is able to unlock the closed book, in order to insert text and images to the Wiki pages of boxers and bouts. Once material has been added, the book then remains open for all to see and click on to enter the Wiki.
