Not to be confused with Unanimity.

A unanimous decision (UD) is a winning criterion in several full-contact combat sports, such as boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, mixed martial arts and other sports involving striking in which all three judges agree on which fighter won the match.[1]

In boxing, each of the three judges keep score (round by round) of which fighter they feel is winning (and losing). A decision is not required to be unanimous for a boxer to be given a victory. Unanimous decision shouldn't be confused with a majority decision or split decision.
