BoxRec Boxing Encyclopedia Search Engine

You will find a Search Engine "box" on every page here. Enter a search term into that box and click either the "Go" or "Search" button below that box. The "Go" feature gets you directly to the page containing your search term--if there is only one page containing that term. If there are two or more pages containing your search term, you will get a list of those pages instead. The "Search" feature provides you a list of all pages containing your search term.

The BoxRec Boxing Wikipedia search engine is an extremely useful tool. Not only can you locate a particular boxer’s page by entering his/her name in the search box, but all other references made to that boxer in any other BoxRec Wikipedia page-–including all other images, if any, of that boxer.

Of course, the search engine is not limited to finding boxer pages. You can also locate text and images of other subjects--such as boxing venues, awards, The Ring magazine covers, Olympians, and so forth. As with the example mentioned above--of searching for all other page references to a particular boxer–-you can find any other page references to the subject you have entered into the search box.

Note: The search engine limits its search to pages within the BoxRec Boxing Encyclopedia. It does not search other non-BoxRec Wikipedia pages. Nor does it search the database of the BoxRec.com database. (The BoxRec database is primarily a database of Fight Records; it also contains "records" of referees, judges, managers, and promoters.) To search the BoxRec.com database, you should go to that site’s Home Page. (You can learn the explanations of the various search options provided on the BoxRec Home Page by going to the Wikipedia BoxRec.com page.)

Also, another good place to start, to locate particular subjects, is the List of Categories.

We hope you enjoy your visit to this Boxing Encyclopedia.
