After the match, the boxers sometimes hug to show their appreciation for a good fight.

What appears to be "hugging" during the match is known as clenching. Boxing is an extremely demanding sport, and the boxers can sometimes tire very quickly, especially when taking a lot of punishment. By holding onto one's opponent, it gives the boxer a few seconds of rest, and their opponent will have trouble hitting them when they are clenched together.

What can a hug from a boy mean?

It depends on what type of hug it is. If, during the hug, the boy pats your back, this means that you are just friends, because all boys, when hugging the same gender, pat their friends back. It is sometimes good to keep it like that. If his hands are on your lower back during the hug, then he likes you, or (hopefully) respects you for who you are. If he holds you close and makes you feel small, then he is willing to protect you, and likes. Good Luck, but remember: keep boys as friends, not always as boyfriends. :)

be very cautious of hugs from men. a woman can be hugged wrong. a man can take advantage of a woman by hugging her in the wrong way. always be prepared to put your arm out to stop a man who is potentially going to hug you. They will sometimes say "I'm a hugger" you can tell them. "I am not". women are quite frequently taken advantage of during these hugs, because it is so unexpected.
