About the Game
BigDawg Boxing is a web-based boxing manager simulation. The objective is to manage a gym full of boxers to world titles. You'll scout your opponents, develop fight plans, make strategic career decisions, and talk trash in the press. Along the way your boxers can win regional titles. As your fighters win regional and world titles you level up and earn rewards. The ultimate objective is to hold the world title belt in every division at the same time. Part of the game is socializing with managers from all over the world. Since 1999 our 68,000 registered players have managed nearly 100,000 boxers in more than 2,000,000 boxing matches.

Fight fixing is strictly prohibited

This is meant to be the equivalent of a sanctioning organization withholding a fighter's purse for an unacceptable level of effort.

There are always a limited number of gifted fighters or "naturals" active in the game.
These fighters occur randomly and very rarely. Many go undiscovered and never reach their full potential. These fighters seemingly do better than their stats would suggest and always outperform. You can't tell a gifted fighter by their stats or via sparring. Their magic will only show up in the ring.
