The Web's Longest Running Boxing Manager Simulation
BigDawg Boxing is the internet's longest running 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.
Register, create a boxer, and have your first fight within 10 minutes!

In the News
Fight forcing is now available to non-contributing members. However, forced fights will count against the limit on # of fights per division per week for non-contributing players, when enforcement of that feature kicks in.
Resolved: World Title Fights History perf
The performance problem causing the World Title Fights History report to timeout has been resolved
Forced fight log has been fixed
Check out the forced fight log under stats and make sure to poke fun of managers forcing and subsequently losing to bots.
New boxer info
When you scout a boxer his all time P4P ranking is now available on his scouting page.
Stats are now available to all
Game stats are now available to all players. We have some tuning to do as some of the reports are taking too long but that will be resolved soon.
E-mailed fight reports are back!
Private fight reports are now delivered via e-mail once again. You can control delivery of these reports via the notifications setting in your gym. For now its all or nothing. Soon we'll set this up to function on a fighter by fighter basis.
Sundays to be "freeview" days
Effective tomorrow Sundays will be the day where non-supporting members will have access to all game functions available to supporting members. Think of it as a weekly reminder of what you're missing out on by not being a supporter :)
This means that as a non-supporting member you have full access for 30 days after signing up and then every Sunday thereafter.
We strongly encourage you to become a supporting member. This game does require a fairly large membership base just to break even let alone pay the folks that work on it something for their time.
Becoming a supporting member also allows us to reinvest and improve the game and add new features.
Changes to the BOT experience
We'll run this way for 6 months then revisit and tweak based on results.
If your boxer is auto scheduled and a bot opponent is not available, one will be randomly modeled after an existing boxer to face your boxer. Bottom line: EVERY manager that wants a fight for his boxer will get one. Hard stop. If that doesn't happen it's because the programmer has been drinking on the job again and messed up. Bitch us out in the support forum and it will get fixed.
All bots will be modeled after boxers with a better than .500 record.
The longevity of a bot, expressed in fights will be int(100 - (rating * 5)) This means that bots rated 20 and above will be generated just for a single fight and immediately shut down afterwords. 0 rated bots will have the greatest lifespan with the # of fights decreasing as the bots go up in rating.
Bots will be scoutable (fight reports will be visble), except obviously not the ones that only get one fight.
Unless it is a bot, for a boxer to show up in a competition list it's manager will have to have logged in within the last 7 days.
In the competition list fighters will be listed by the level of the manager in ascending order. The farther down the list you go the more likely your boxer is to get his ass kicked.
Don't be a pussy.
Game upgrade complete
The fix to bot forcing has been installed. Please let us know if you have any issues.
Game upgrade on Sunday
There will be a game upgrade on Sunday to make more bots available.
