Dear Boxers, Coaches and Supporters.
Entries are now closed for this weekend’s Elite & Youth Championships and the final entry list can be viewed via the following link:
A reminder to everyone taking part this Saturday that the weigh in and medicals will take place between 8am – 10am. Further announcements will be made on Saturday with regards to each further day of the tournament. There will be no weight allowance for boxers this weekend and trial scales be available for every boxer through out each weigh in/medical period.
Please also be reminded of the new rules AIBA has recently brought in:
- 46.2: In AOB Elite Competitions and any other event as decided by AIBA, the use of professional handwraps shall be mandatory.
This means that both Elite Male & Females must use professional handwraps for the forthcoming championships at all times.
- 44.6. In AOB Elite and Youth Men’s Competitions:
- 44.6.2 Twelve (12) oz gloves must be used for the Welterweight (69 kg) category to Super Heavyweight (91+ kg) category.
This means that Youth boxers competing in 69kg weight categories or over must now wear 12oz gloves in line with the rule that already exists for Elite males.
We would like to also remind all males competing in the forthcoming championships of the following rule again:
- 188.8.131.52.2: A boxer must be clean-shaven before all medical examinations & bouts.
We look forward to seeing everyone there and wish all the boxers who have entered the very best of luck.
