I bet you'll find many or most of these at http://www.wordreference.com/.

BTW, it's contender in English (in case that wasn't just a typo).

Found some but wait to get the ok from a native

boxeador = boxer
pugilista = "
muñones = gloves someplace else has guantes for gloves
fajador = loosely translates to brawler
boxisticamente = grabs center stage from his opponent, I guess before the match
cuadrilátero = boxing ring
combate = match
Wouldn't you think there would be an Eng/Sp translation glossary somewhere'

peso fuerte heavyweight, peso gallo bantamweight, peso ligero lightweight,
peso medio middleweight

I watch a lot of fights on Mexican television channels and have picked up these weight catagories.

peso money --also means weight.
