Safety of the Sport

  • Statistics have proven amateur boxing to be one of the safest sports to participate in
  • The rules have been formulated with the safety of the boxers as the paramount concern.
  • It is the only sport whereby a doctor must be in attendance at all times.
  • As well, each athlete must be certified fit by the doctor on the day of competition.
  • There are no exceptions!
  • Two other safety factors are the Official and Coach.
  • If at any time during the bout, either feel that an athlete is out-classed or over-matched, they will stop the bout immediately.
  • Safety of the athlete is their biggest concern.
