The sport of boxing dates back to the time of the ancient Greeks and Romans. While boxing has come a long way from its origin in fist fighting, head injury is of great concern in the sport of boxing. A study found that over 70% of acute injuries occur in the head region, with almost half of the injuries to this region being concussions . Various techniques have been implemented to discern the risk of head injury in boxing. Although some surrogate data have been collected to assess the mechanism that causes the injuries , real-time head acceleration data from the ring has yet to be obtained.
