FAIR PLAY POLICY
ABF-UK events are aimed at making all tournaments fair to all.
All Boxer’s must have a valid up to date ABF-UK licence and it must contain proof of age and experience. We want to STOP competitors from competing in divisions that they should not be in.
All fighters will be weighed at each event to ensure a level playing field for all.
This will also ensure that the novice divisions are not being manipulated by way of more experienced Boxer entering a lower class. this will not be allowed to happen.
All Boxers/Coaches must fill in their details including club name on the pre reg form.
Can everybody from the same club please fill their form in the same way for example if your club is known by it’s initials that’s how it should be filled in.
This way competitor’s from the same club can be kept apart on the draw sheet when the draw sheet is drafted.
We use the standard Boxing rules and scoring system which can be found in the rules and regulations section.
Can all referees and coaches make themselves familiar with the rules and the slight changes that we are using remember this is to also make our sport more exciting and more entertaining for the spectator.
