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. Amateur boxing bouts are short in duration, comprising three rounds of three minutes in men, and four rounds of two minutes in women, each with a one-minute interval between rounds. 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.
