Hmm, don't think so. The exams would be fun though. The examiner punches the student straight in the face, laying him out cold: Punch resistance C-

Dinamita is also taking part in extra curricular studies called "Wikipedia 101"

If the examiner was Malinaggi - that should be an instant fail!

Knowing my luck though, my punch resistance examiner would be be David Haye.

Jeff - Why do you want to know this and is it something you would think of taking up?

I do not think there is a degree specifically for boxing in the UK, but you could get an honors degree in sports science. From there you could progress to take a PHD in the same subject, and if you find a university with a suitable postgraduate research project you could base it on Boxing.
Then you could introduce yourself as a Dr of boxing if it took your fancy

i really doubt it. you can do degrees in football and it really pisses me off, one in boxing or any other one particular sport would piss me off even more.

you can do various sports degrees where you specialize in certain sports. a friend of mine is doing his dissertation on how boxing can improve behavior in urban areas. hes using that show khan did with the 8 lads as well as interviewing allot of fighters.

Or you can do postgrad stuff on basically any topic you want. A degree in boxing though? Don't think so.

I'm not sure how useful that would be, except in a very specific area of journalism which would be incredibly competitive. Although I hear in England there is such a thing as "David Beckham Studies", so anything is possible. I'm sure that looks outstanding on a CV

Regardless, TFFP would get a first class honours if such a degree existed, no question.

No boxing degrees currently but nothing stopping you doing a dissertation on boxing like Anal Force did.
