Boxing is a combat sport in which two people, usually wearing protective gloves, throw punches at each other for a predetermined amount of time in a boxing ring. Amateur boxing is both an Olympic and Commonwealth Games sport and is a common fixture in most international games.
Mixed Martial Arts is a full-contact combat sport that allows striking and grappling, both standing and on the ground, using techniques from various combat sports and martial arts. It can use arm and hand strikes; the fighter might use boxing skills (modified for MMA), or Muay Thai or kickboxing skills (again modified for MMA). However, MMA also involves leg kicks, which usually come from Muay Thai or kickboxing, though some fighters also use traditional martial arts for the kicks.
