According to Wikipedia there are 3 ways of winning, Wayne:

Boxing is a combat sport where two participants, generally of similar weight, fight each other with their fists. Boxing is supervised by a referee and is typically engaged in during a series of one to three-minute intervals called rounds. There are three ways to win. Victory is achieved if the opponent is knocked out and unable to get up before the referee counts to ten seconds (a Knockout, or KO) or if the opponent is deemed too injured to continue (a Technical Knockout, or TKO). If there is no stoppage of the fight before an agreed number of rounds, a winner is determined either by the referee's decision or by judges' scorecards.
[en.wikipedia.org]

The first two ways clearly involve inflicting injury. The third option clearly involves attempted injury being inflicted to either or both opponents but they reserve the right to say in any post fight interview, "It was a good fight but he didn't hurt me, guv"
