How will tag team boxing work? What are the rules for Los Pineda Coladas vs. The Fantastic 2?

March 4th will be a historic moment in crossover boxing with MF & DAZN: X Series holding the first ever tag team boxing match.

It will see two teams, Los Pineda Coladas and The Fantastic 2, in what will be a historic night.

But with this being a new type of match, many fans will be wondering what the rules will be.

DAZN breaks them down.

1. Teams

1.1 A tag team bout will consist of two teams of two boxers each.

1.2 During a tag team bout, one member of each team will compete under the Boxing Rules (“Fighter”).

1.3 Each team member not participating in the tag team bout (“substitute”) will stand outside the ring ropes and on the apron behind their team’s corner.

1.4 Each team will be free to determine which team member will be the fighter at the beginning of each round of the tag team bout.

1.5 A substitute may not enter the ring unless tagged by a fighter in accordance with Clause 2.

1.6. The substitute shall at all times follow the instructions of the Local Commission and the Tag Team Boat Referee. This may mean, at times, standing below the ring apron.

2. Tagging

2.1 A tag is initiated when a fighter lifts and holds a glove straight up in the air during any inactivity period during a tag team bout.

2.2 Once the fighter has raised his glove in the air, he is free to move to his corner and touch the glove with the alternate at which point the fighter becomes the alternate and vice versa (a “tag”).

2.3. During a tag the competitor must stand in the neutral corner until told by the referee to proceed with the tag team boot. An opponent shall not be allowed to tag his substitute during the tag of the other team.

2.4 Where the substitute does not wish to tag, the fighter must continue with the tag team boot.

2.5 A fighter must not attempt a tag during any round of engagement with an opponent. For the avoidance of doubt, a tag may only be applied during a period of inactivity such as after the clinch has been broken by the referee.

2.6. Where an opponent attempts to continue a tag team bout during a tag, their team will be disqualified from the tag team bout.

2.7. There is no limit to the number of tags that can be applied during a bot.

2.8. A tag cannot be applied during the referee’s count after a knockdown.

3. Winning the competition

3.1 According to boxing rules, a team wins a tag team bout as if only two members were competing in the tag team bout.

3.2 For the avoidance of doubt:

  • Scorecards are calculated based on the boxers’ performance in the ring as if both team members were one person.
  • If a member of a team is knocked out or the referee decides on a technical knockout, the other team will win the tag team bout.
