What to Wear to a Boxing Match: Know Before You Go

Experiencing a live Boxing event is one of the most exhilarating adventures that you can do.

Many of the announcers and commentators are completely dressed up.

Does that mean you have to dress up too? In this page, we will explain what to wear to a Boxing Match.

    What to Wear to a Boxing Match

    There's no official dress code for a Boxing event, and what you wear to a fight can vary drastically depending on what section you are going to sit in.

    Most fans come to Boxing events in a 'Casual dress code', which means:

     For Men For Women
    Jeans, a dress shirt (casually turn down collared), and a T-shirt or sleeveless shirt
    Jeans, a T-shirt, Skirts


    However, if you're sitting in the floor-seat sections next to the VIP sections (typically reserved for fighters and the guest of fighters), you'll want to button up a bit more to fit in.

    The reason for this is that this is the section where many celebrities, both fighters, and non-fighters will sit.

    Celebrities normally come ready for the cameras, and at minimum to take a picture for social media.

    If you don't want to feel out of place, feel free to take it up a notch and dress business casual or even business formal.

    Are You Going to an After Party?

    How to dress at a Boxing event ultimately comes down to three things:

    1. Do you want to fit in with your section
    2. Do you mind sticking out in your section
    3. Are you going to an after-party?

    If you're going to an after-party, you'll want to come dressed in your best outfit.

    Chances are, that you won't have time to go back to the hotel to get changed, especially if you're staying for the entire event.

    Most Boxing events end past midnight, and most clubs and bars close around 2 am (except in Miami), which means that every second counts.


    As long as you don't come in gym clothes, you aren't going to get dirty looks or stick out.

    Typically, most Boxing fans come in jeans and a shirt.

    However, those who have paid a premium to sit on the floor seats to be near other fighters and celebrities will normally dress up in business formal attire.

    If you aren't planning on going out after the fights, just come in comfortable jeans.

    If you're planning on going out after the fights, but don't have floor seats, you can still come dressed how you like.

    Just make sure that you know what is allowed at the bars/clubs that you're planning to go to afterward.

    For example, some clubs don't allow any type of hat.

    Don't get caught in a situation where you didn't do your hair, just to wear a hat, and then have to take off the hat before you're allowed in the club.
