25 awesome ring walk songs, chosen by UWCB boxers!

After 8 weeks of training for your UWCB event, you get the chance to walk out at a huge event in front of a roaring crowd whilst your chosen entrance music plays.

Walk-on themes became a big hit in boxing after former world champion Muhammad Ali used the Star Wars theme for a title bout against Earnie Shavers in 1977. Since then, music has become a vital part of boxing shows.

Muhammad Ali used walk out music for the first time in 1977 against Earnie Shavers.

Choosing the perfect track for your walk-in can be a difficult task, so to help you out we’ve put together a list of the Top 25 songs, as picked by UWCB boxers!

The Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ hit ‘Can’t Stop’, used by professional boxer Wladimir Klitschko, came out on top. The 2002 track is the top choice for amateur boxers, with the instantly recognisable guitar rhythm and Anthony Kiedis’ punchy vocals ideal for motivating them and exciting crowds.

It is the most popular walk-on theme, closely followed by Eminem’s ‘Lose Yourself’ and The Prodigy’s number one hit ‘Firestarter.’

Completing the top five walk-on themes are ‘All of The Lights’ by Kayne West ft. Rihanna and Survivor’s 1982 classic Rocky movie theme ‘Eye of the Tiger’.

  1. Thought there might be some more rock or heavy metal in there. Seems like a sure hit to get in the zone. Perhaps if/when I come to take part, I can break the trend ??

    1. Lonely train – black stone cherry.
      Rooster – alice in chains
      Gonna go far kid- offspring

    Can I train at one location and then fight at another? And how often are events at each place please?
    I’d like Poole as close to me but want more fitness time first. Many thanks.

  3. Im looking to sign up for the event in Edinburgh, I don’t have Facebook to sign up is there another way. looks amazing and want to be part of it.

    1. Hello Mark,

      If you go ahead and sign up to the Edinburgh event the local rep will be in touch via text message after the initial automated text message and email. You will then be able to communicate directly with the area rep and state that you are not on Facebook and they will advise you the best way to proceed.

  4. Hey, I have seen the events recorded by epic studios and they are huge! I want to raise as much money as possible. How do I take part in the main event? Rather than the smaller ones? Thanks

  5. I’m looking to sign up for 2020 do I have to sign up nearer the time or now? And what sort of training times are they from Gravesend Kent thanks you

    1. Hello Marlon,

      Great news that you are looking to take part in one of our events. For 2020 you will need to sign up closer to the time. I advise you to find a location you are looking to take part in on our locations page here and keep an eye on the event and training dates.

      As for training times, once you have signed up a local area representative will get in touch with you to discuss all the details.
