With the assistance of the Association of Boxing Commissions (ABC), the State Boxing Commissioners and the Tribal Nations, the AAPRP has compiled and indexed a virtually complete listing of the pre-fight medical requirements of each jurisdiction across the United States and Canada.
Dr. Michael Schwartz, AAPRP Chairman stated, “this document is intended to assist Commissioners, Ringside Physicians, Promoters, Managers, Trainers and Boxers, enabling them to determine those medical regulations currently required by each state or jurisdiction. The AAPRP hopes that this information will ultimately reduce the costs of unnecessary examinations, delays and ambiguities prior to the pre-fight medical evaluation”, Schwartz continued. “It is also our hope that this compilation will assist the ABC, AAPRP and ringside physicians to develop standardized medical requirements across the United States”
The database will be presented at the ABC convention next month at the Miccosukee Tribal Nation Resort in Miami, Florida. For a complete listing of this information, go to the AAPRP web site www.aaprp.org and click on “Commission Information”
