Nope - no boxing matches or anything like that. One team might have a football game on/planned, but that's not a national thing.

It's usually just a day to eat leftovers with the family, and maybe go into town to the shops with the boxing day sales (good time to buy next year's Christmas decor at 50% off).

Never had any connection to Boxing the sport.

Boxing gifts for the poor was it's origin.
