I want to give my husband a 40th birthday party, but wanted to use a boxing theme. That's his favorite sport. I can't seem to find anything.

Why not google "boxing champions," and if you have a printer, print pictures of them and hang around. You can make "frames" for them, inexpensively, fabric over cardboard, etc. See if you can find some inexpensive boxing gloves of various colors, sizes, at thrift stores.
Then if you have a picture of your husband boxing or something, put it up with a twist on Ali's "I am the greatest" saying, "YOU are the GREATEST! and the MOST FABULOUS!" or what have you, and have some balloons from the $1 store making IT the "main attraction!"
I am planning a boxing theme party for my brother's 40th birthday. Does anyone have inexpensive ideas for food, party favors, and decorations? Thanks.

You could use aluminum pie plates to make those big belt buckles they give the champions. That and some black fabric over cardboard and the belt is done.
And I'm thinking of a cake in the shape of two gloves at the point of impact, two round shapes, two small squares for the wrists, and you just clip out a bit from the rounds to be the thumb. Milk chocolate frosting, and white for the lacing on the wrist. (07/27/2008)
