Q challenges Sisko to a boxing match.

Boxing, or pugilism, was a sport in which two participants of similar weight fight each other with their fists. Victory was achieved if the opponent is knocked down and unable to get up before the referee counts to ten (knockout) or if the opponent was deemed too injured to continue (technical knockout). If there is no stoppage of the fight before an agreed number of rounds, a winner is determined either by the referee or judges' judgement.

Benny Russell, Willie Hawkins and Cassie were fans of boxing. While Hawkins participated in the sport, Russell and Cassie would listen to matches on the radio. Cassie hoped that one day there would be a chance for females to take up boxing. (DS9 novelization: Far Beyond the Stars)

In 2267, Lieutenant Peterson was de-throned as the boxing champion of the USS Enterprise by the young Grang of the Wolf clan. (TOS novel: Mission to Horatius)

In 2369, Q challenged Benjamin Sisko to a boxing match after Sisko demanded that the entity return the Deep Space 9 residents who had disappeared. Q began hitting an unimpressed Sisko, who threw a punch of his own, knocking Q to the ground. (DS9 episode: "Q-Less")

From The Vault

Boxing makes an appearance in Fallout 1 and Fallout 2. In Fallout 1, you could take some bets in Junktown, for the champion Saul. In Fallout 2, entering the Jungle Gym of New Reno, you get to do some boxing against 4 characters, Joqq, Pete McKneely, Evan Holyfeld, and The Masticator. After defeating these idiots, you gain the Prizefighter perk and some fame.

The Masticator can bite your Ear off, and then you will find it in your inventory, as an unique item, named Player's ear. This event reduces your charisma by 1 point, so be careful. See The Masticator "Odd Habits" for more information

Host

Boxing is hosted by Stuart and will ask you for 50% of your pay from boxing. Better than nothing. Upon entering the ring, you are given your own Boxing Gloves, but under the Shark Club, you can find some Plated Boxing Gloves, allowing for some cheating to begin.

From GuildWiki

Dwarven Boxing (A.K.A. Brawling) is a mini-game introduced in Eye of the North. It takes place through a series of quests given by Kilroy Stonekin in Gunnar's Hold which allows you to fight a variety of different foes from all over Tyria, and explore Fronis Irontoe's Lair. If you don't already have one, Kilroy will give you a pair of Brass Knuckles that must be equipped before any brawling can be done.

Brawling Quests

These quests are all given by Kilroy Stonekin in Gunnar's Hold and are as follows:

Brawling

When Brawling:

  • Your maximum Health is 500. (600 in Hard Mode)
  • Your maximum energy starts at 15 and increases by 5 every time you are knocked out.
  • You can only use Brawling skills to damage foes. (Although on occasion melee attacks will damage the opponent)
  • When you knock out an enemy you gain 200 Health. (300 in Hard Mode)
  • Instead of dying when you reach 0 Health, you are knocked out.
  • While knocked out use STAND UP! to get back on your feet.

The normal Skill Bar is replaced by 8 Brawling Skills:

Brawling Block

Being Prepared

To gain maximum advantage use this weapon customized, inscribed with a Brawn over Brains inscription, and upgraded with a Dagger Handle of Shelter or Defense, and either a Furious, Sundering, or Vampiric Dagger Tang.

  • Armor is unaffected by the Brawling effect.

Consider using Brawler's Insignias on an extra set of armor you can wear to obtain maximum defense against attacks while Brawling.

  • Make the most of your Brawling.

Enemies give large amounts of experience when killed. Bring one Insight Scroll of choice to use while completing Fronis's Lair. The Dungeon, when played on hard mode, will take a little less than 10 minutes, ideal for Adventurer's, Hero's, and Lightbringer scrolls. Alternatively, there will always be an enemy within reach, so a Berserker's or Rampager's scroll can easily last till the end of the dungeon.

In order to max out the XP garnered from this run (42,596XP including quest reward), one needs at least a 250% XP insight scroll. So all three (Scroll of Slayer's Insight, Scroll of Berserker's Insight, Scroll of the Lightbringer) will yield the maximum XP possible per run.

Boxing Strategies

  • Brawling Combo Punch should be used as often as possible because it has a long recharge. If you are knocked out and successfully recover this skill will be recharged, ready for another use.
  • Keep Brawling Block up as much as possible as it is hard to tell which move your opponent will use next; this way, you can avoid more damage on average.
  • If knocked out, your energy will be depleted. You must then restore your energy back to maximum by using the skill STAND UP! before the timer reaches zero. Every time the skill is used you regain 1 energy, and it helps to both tap the '8' key and click the skill button for a speedier recovery. You can also bind extra keys, like '9' and '0', to "Use skill 8", letting you recover energy four times as quickly by mashing the three keys and clicking at the same time.
