Statistically significant increase is observed in the glucose levels of boxers as one of the blood parameters before and after the match (P=0.0014). Decrease in the insulin levels is determined before and after the match, however it is not found statistically significant (P=0.1059). It is observed that cortisol levels have increased before and after the match, however it is not considered statistically meaningful (P=0.0534). Decrease in the urea levels is determined before and after the match, however the difference is not found statistically significant. (P=0.5837).
