To dream of boxing represents a struggle to prove yourself. Wanting to prove you are stronger than someone that thinks they are stronger than you. Attempting to prove to someone else that you are a bigger winner than they are. Proving you are strong or proving you are good enough.
Waking life situations were you are feeling at odds with issues that you want to prove aren't as powerful, scary, or important as they claim to be.
Alternatively, boxing may reflect confrontation with something you want to finish once and for all. Wanting to totally embarrass an enemy or competition with superior strength or skills. Wanting to face a problem that you feel lingers or makes you feel that you will never settle something unfinished.
Negatively, dreams of boxing may be a sign that you are too concerned with proving yourself when it's too late or inappropriate.
Example: A young man dreamed of seeing a beautiful girl wearing boxing gloves. In waking life he felt that he was losing out on a chance to prove himself with a girl he liked because he was moving out of state. He was having issues letting go of the opportunity he felt he had to make the girl his girlfriend.
