Boxing County is a county of Binzhou in Shandong Province in the People's Republic of China.

History[edit]

The area of Boxing County was mostly created within the last few millennia and long remained sparsely populated owing to the destructive floods of the Yellow River.

In March 1956, Boxing absorbed most of the former Putai County, although Putai itself now forms the Pucheng area of Binzhou. Putai County had been established in 596.[a]
