The participation composition is based on the illustration below. There are two groups ‘A’ and ‘B’ consisting of four teams each. Every team comprises of six players (a break of five male fighters and one female fighter) and six back-ups. These six players belong to six different weight categories. The four teams compete to play twelve League Level Matches. All the matches are played between the respective teams of the allotted groups only, i.e., Group A teams do not compete against teams of Group B. Two Semi Final Matches are played and a match for the third and fourth place.
The SBL observes the following six weight categories
|Light heavyweight||(169 lbs)|
|Women's Flyweight||(112 lbs)|
Boxing, like other Combat Sports, is an individual (Boxer) based sport. However, Boxing in a team format is going to be introduced in the Super Boxing League, where there will be Six Boxers in a team and the way a Boxer wins the bout gets his team a score under the Point Scoring System. At the end of the event, the team with the maximum score wins. This concept is going to grow the fan following of the Boxing Team instead of an individual and as a result, will help in capturing the market.
Following are the criteria (Point Scoring System – Boxing) where a contestant can win/draw a match and accordingly, the team gets scored.
When all the judges score the contest a draw
When maximum judges score the contest a draw
When all the judges score differently
Referee Decision = +3
When the Referee gets the last word and scores the contestant(s)
When all the judges score win for a contestant
When maximum judges score a contestant and other judges score the other contestant
Technical Knock Out = +4
When Referee stops the contest and when an injury as a result of a legal maneuver is severe enough to terminate a bout
Knock Out = +6
When a contestant is rendered unconscious due to strikes also known as a ‘lights out knockout’
Team with maximum points after all bouts wins the Game.
The game with an equal score by both teams at the end of all bouts will be considered as a tie.
