Yes in boxing kidney punches are illegal and for good reason as getting punched in the liver is extremely painful and can be fatal.

So if you do a kidney punch when boxing someone then you could potentially kill that person or injure the person severely with a kidney punch.

A kidney punch can rupture a persons kidney which is similar to having a splenic rupture in that it is usually caused by a direct blow to the abdomen, side, or mid to low back which causes damage or a tear to the organ or kidney.

So by damaging the kidney it can lead to kidney failure and eventually more kidney problems and possibly death if not treated.

So doing a kidney punch in boxing would get your removed from the boxing game as kidney punches are indeed illegal in boxing.

Any game has its own rules. Boxing attracts people because there are big risks for athletes. More blood, more excitement, more money... it's always been that way. But the rules balance all this with an acceptable option. But people still see risky situations in every serious match and bet  - It seems to me that boxing is the second most wagered sport after football.
