Original question: "Would you play a Boxer if they implemented one in the game?"

This is not a champion concept idea. I just added concept kits to give you guys a general idea of how a boxer might be if they do implement them in the game.
I would really like to see a boxer champion implemented in the game. A boxer would be unique compared to the other champions. In terms of the kit and so on. A Q that will change depending on which attack of the combo chain you are with each attack having a unique effect. Blitz does have a boxer skin, but his kit doesn't really match a boxer. We do have martial artist but we want an actual boxing champ, with gloves, and everything. Added a 2nd Kit, something much more easier and understandable.

This can also become the black champion people have always wanted
Female Boxing Champion Maybe?
Lee Sin, Udyr and Blitzcrank are NOT boxers

DISCLAIMER: This is an open ended discussion. Although I'm not really adept at making concept kits, I'm pretty sure the entire community can come up with something. These are just personal examples that I've made. What can you guys come up with?

Concept Idea #1 for Boxer abilities!
Quote:
200 Energy

Punchout:
(Passive): Auto-attacks cost 15 energy and do damage relative to current energy. 150% damage at 200 energy, 100% at 100 energy, 50% at 0 energy. Auto Attacks stop Energy Regain for 5 seconds.

(Q)Guard
(Toggle): While active you are unable to attack or use abilities and you move at base speed (no bonus from boots, etc.) but regen energy rapidly.
When exiting this stance, you damage and slow all nearby enemies.

(W)Guard Mastery:
(Passive): All incoming auto-attacks restore 5 energy and do 2/4/6/8/10% reduced damage
Active: Step In: Close a moderate the distance with a target, dealing damage, disabling the Guard passive temporarily and increasing damage taken by 5% while guard is disabled.

(W)Circle Around:
(Active): Quickly reposition yourself on the opposite side of your target dodging all physical damage (attacks and abilities) for 1 second.

Cost: 50 energy.

(R)C-C-C-Combo Breaker:
(Active): Unleash massive damage at melee range. Damage done is based on bonus AD and is inversely proportional to remaining energy (most damage at 0 energy, least damage at 200). Both you and target become staggered after the ability, suffering movement reduction and being unable to attack or use abilities for a short period.
Concept Idea #2 for Boxer abilities! THIS IS JUST AN IDEA
Quote:
200 Energy

Adrenaline Rush:
(Passive): Every 3rd attack does 125% physical damage, rewards 1 combo point and instantly restores 10 Energy. (5 Combo Points Max).

(Q) Combos
  • Left, Right: Taunt
  • Hook: Slow
  • Straight: Silence
  • Uppercut: Stun
  • Haymaker: Finisher

(Active): Boxer deals a series of combos starting with Left, Right. After each combo lands, the Q ability will change its name to the next attack in the chain.
Left, Right -> Hook -> Straight -> Upper Cut -> Haymaker. When the Q spell is first used, Champion cannot gain combo points from passive. Combos will cooldown if you run out of combo points, or don't use the next combo in the chain within 2 seconds.


Cost: 1 Combo Point, 20 Energy per Attack
Cooldown: None

(W) Feint:
(Active): Boxer feints and taunts enemy champion, causing next auto attack to deal additional physical damage.

Cost: 50 Energy
Cooldown: 10 / 9 / 8 / 7 / 6 seconds

(E) Dash:
(Active): Dash toward any direction

Cost: 80 Energy
Cooldown: 10 / 9.5 / 9 / 8.5 / 8 seconds

(R) Dempsey Roll:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7Vh8tVPjHk#t=0m23s VIDEO!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5sdJSPL1Vs#t=2m12s VIDEO!
(Active): Weave through all nearby champions dealing physical damage to all of them while dodging attacks and deflecting spells

Cost: 120 Energy
Cooldown: 150 / 130 / 110 seconds

The Dempsey Roll was a technique used by the boxer Jack Dempsey. He was able to dominate his weight class by utilizing a technique whereby he would almost bob while throwing punches like a pendulum; bobbing to the left and come back with a left hook and vice-versa. It allows certain defensive capabilities since it allows the boxer to bob left to right, but is open to counters since the rhythm is repetitive and easy to time. However, the major factor comes from the weight shifting and full rotation to the back and hips to allow a powerful hit which comes from the blind spot. The bobbing aspect takes the boxer to the further parts of the other person's vision and thus there is a factor of being hit without seeing it (unless the person steps back).
Concept Idea #3 for Boxer abilities!
Quote:
200 Energy

Precision:
(Passive): Boxer starts off with 10% Armor Penetration.

(Q) Left Right
(Active):Boxer Attacks twice and slows enemy by 20/25/30/35/40%

Cost: 40 Energy
Cooldown: 8 / 7 / 6 / 5 / 4

(W) Uppercut:
(Active): Boxer Launches enemy champion in the air dealing physical damage

Cost: 60 Energy
Cooldown: 16 / 14 / 12 / 10 / 8 seconds

(E) Haymaker:
(First Cast): Boxer focuses his rage into his fist increasing his dash range and damage.
(Second Cast): Boxer dashes toward enemy champion and dealing physical damage and stunning the enemy.

Cost: 80 Energy
Cooldown: 20 / 18 / 16 / 14 / 12 seconds

(R) Dempsey Roll:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7Vh8tVPjHk#t=0m23s VIDEO!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5sdJSPL1Vs#t=2m12s VIDEO!
(Active): Boxer lunges at enemy champion, suppressing the target for 2 seconds and striking for physical damage 5 times in 0.334-second intervals then does a finishing blow knocking target back and dealing additional physical damage. If they collide with terrain after being knocked back, they are dealt the same amount of physical damage again and are stunned for 1.5 seconds. If the target collides with another enemy champion, it will deal physical damage to them and knocking them in the air. Each of his strikes triggers on-hit effects and instantly restores 10 energy.

Cost: 120 Energy
Cooldown: 150 / 130 / 110 seconds

He'd look like TJ Combo from Killer Instinct and one of his jokes would be c-c-c-c-combo breaker.
