Objectives: The aim of this study was to analyze some biochemical parameters of boxing sportsmen before and after training. Methods: Twenty professional boxing men were included in the study. Venous blood samples were taken from the subjects, and some biochemical parameters were measured before and 6 minutes after fighting. Results: Serum levels of ACTH, AST, GGT, ALT, and GH were significantly increased and serum levels of IGF was decreased by fighting exercise (p 0.05). There were no significant changes in serum total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides and ALP levels after fighting exercise (p>0.05). Conclusions: Taken together serum AST, ALT and GGT results in our study, we suppose that our results point muscle injury. GH levels were significantly increased by training in our study. It is an expected result that exercise alters pituitary functions. It is considered that, this increase is associated with response to exercise stress. Our study provides additional evidence to the conclusion that plasma lipid profile does not change by an acute exercise. The results of this study suggest that boxing sport affects some substantial biochemical parameters, and all biochemical parameters must be carefully considered when evaluating physically active patients’ laboratory testing results.
