Objective of the study was to determine the vectors of scientific research in the field of professional boxing, taking into account the peculiarities of its modern development.
Results and conclusions. The author notes that in professional boxing there is no scientifically based system of individual training of professional boxers, adapted to the peculiarities of boxing matches, high requirements of the functional state and psychological readiness of boxers. As an innovative vector of scientific research in the field of professional boxing, the author proposes the use of the principles of integration and interdisciplinarity in improving the professional training of coaches, management, sports psychology, medical and psychological support. Interest in professional boxing will grow, but the problems that specialists have to face must be addressed systematically and comprehensively, including at the modern research level.

Keywords: amateur and professional boxing, patterns, contradictions, prospects for the development of professional boxing in Russia.
