Put tiny spy cameras in Boxing gloves. (Protect lens using some good gel/transparent foam. Or prolly have a pinhole camera)

The camera could be video camera that shoots continuously or still camera that gets triggered automatically on punch (with a small delay, of course).

The cam could also be powered by peizoelectric crystals in the glove ?

       Very likely bakeable, but lithium-ion powerpacks in the cuff would be better.   

       Some sort of tinly windscren cleaning system might be needed to keep the lens clear of blood, sweat and mucus. [+]

       Simply because I like sports to be about the sport, not the spectacle Im giving this a bone.   

       If it was on special gloves for when you have a fight in a car park on a Friday night then it would be a bun.

       You could get a mouth guard tiny cam as well, capable of slow-motion. That way you could action movie style, cut between the glove and the 1st person mouth cam back and forth. Add dramatic music and fast cuts for additional effect.

       What the piezo crystals could do is provide a direct readout of impact force, passed back over the telemetry link ....
