England Boxing is the national governing body (NGB) for amateur boxing. It is responsible for the governance, development and administration of boxing in clubs and competition. It also represents England as a member of the International Boxing Association (AIBA) and the European Boxing Council (EUBC).

The organisation focuses on amateur boxing in its entirety through servicing the network of affiliated clubs nationally, providing a platform and framework for competition, pathway for talent identification onto elite programmes, and increasing participation of the sport through formal and informal programmes.
