Popis Backround Combat sports should be practised with regards to a positive development of personality in diverse areas, such as somatic [Struhar, Dovrtelova and Reguli 2015], moral [Cynarski et al. 2015] and psychological [Reguli et al. 2014]. Boxing is often considered as a typical example of an aggressive sport representing violence [Wann and Branscombe 1990; Cynarski and Litwiniuk 2006). Problem and aim Some authors claim that combative sports training could lead to a reduction of aggressiveness among the trainees [Ziaee et al. 2012; Kuśnierz, Cynarski and Litwiniuk 2014; Pačesová and Putala 2017]. We were focused od aggressivenes level among Slovak boxers. Methods Self-report research tool Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire (BPAQ) [Buss and Perry 1992] was involved in discovering aggressivenes level in the research sample. The total aggressivenes is divided into four factors (anger, hostility, physical aggression, verbal aggression). The research sample involves N=105 male Slovak boxers in the age 24.14 ± 5.42, with the length of boxing training 3.89 ± 5.93 years. Basis statistics methods were used for the analysis. Results Our research showed the slightly lower level in total aggressivenes (77.2) comparing to BPAQ values (77.8). Also, other two factors (physical aggression 23.11 ± 7.10; verbal aggression 14.10 ± 3.79) scored on the lower level than BPAQ standard (physical aggression 24.3 ± 7.7; verbal aggression 15.2 ± 3.84). On the other hand, the slightly higher level was observed in two other factors: anger (17.53 ± 5.96) and hostility (22.44 ± 5.88), comparing with BPAQ values (anger 17.0 ± 5.6; hostility 21.3 ± 5.5). Conclusions In our research, we did not find any differences on the level of statistical significance p<0.05 in aggressiveness level of Slovak boxers comparing with BPAQ values, which are based on the sample N=612 males from a non-sport population.
