While rock isn't the only music to which you can box, it's probably the genre of choice for trying to synchronize your pace. Generally speaking, boxing workouts require tempos around 140-150 BPM. And this is simply too fast for most rapping. It's also faster than most folks can dance. So, you won't find a lot of pop or electronic music there either. Nevertheless, I was able to dig up some variations on the straight-ahead rock from Billy Joel, The Cure, and Sleater Kinney — along with a sporting classic...even if it's not this particular sport.
