WBC Praises Nevada Commission For Gloves Policy

The WBC congratulates the Nevada State Athletic Commission for implementing a much needed policy worth regards to Boxing Gloves to be used in championship fights , which is effective from September 1, 2014 .

Even though there are rules which deal with boxing gloves for championship matches , it is common to see problems one day before the fight which have at times threatened the celebration of the event .

The procedure is clear and concise and is an example for all boxing commissions and federations to institute in their jurisdictions.

The WBC fully supports and will abide by this policy.

CHAMPIONSHIP AND SPECIAL EVENT FIGHT GLOVE PROCEDURE

The following procedure will be followed for all boxing gloves used in

Championship and Special Event Fights:

1. The Promoter will be notified via email of the new Championship/Special Event boxing glove procedure.

2. The Promoter will be emailed a list of the gloves that have been approved by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (“NSAC”).

3. Any “custom glove,” must be approved by NSAC in advance pursuant to NAC 467.427(7). A custom glove includes, in addition to gloves made for a specific fighter, any changes in materials or padding made to any previously approved glove.

4. The NSAC requests that the Promoter or their representative provide all approved Championship/Special Event Boxing Gloves to the NSAC three (3) days prior to Main Event for all Championship or Special Event fights. The championship/special event gloves can be mailed directly from the manufacturer to the NSAC three days or more prior to the event, or hand delivered to the NSAC office during the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 3:00 P.M. Monday through Friday.

5. All gloves will be inspected by the NSAC prior to issuing the gloves to the fighters and/or their camps.

6. After the fighters are weighed in, they will be directed to a designated room to inspect the gloves, and select their primary and secondary pair of gloves.

7. Upon the fighters/camps inspecting and selecting their primary and secondary pair of gloves, the Chief Inspector or his representative will mark #1 signifying primary gloves, and the fighter and inspector will initial and date the gloves. The same procedure will be followed for the secondary gloves.

8. When the selection process is completed, the primary gloves will be placed in a duffle bag labeled "Primary Gloves." Secondary gloves will be placed in duffle bag labeled "Back Up Gloves." Both duffle bags shall be locked with a NSAC combo lock and remain in the possession of NSAC until the night of the event.

9. On the night of the event, the gloves will be brought to the venue by a NSAC representative.

10. The primary gloves will be located with the NSAC representative/Chief Inspector in the dressing room area. The secondary glove duffle bag will be located under NSAC table ringside, locked to the table and readily accessible in the event the secondary gloves are requested.

11. The Primary Glove bag will remain locked at all times when gloves are not being issued.

12. All gloves will be in the care and custody of the NSAC until they are issued.

13. Gloves will be issued to the fighter after the fighter hands are wrapped and when the fighter is prepared to put the gloves on.

14. Under no circumstances will anyone from the fighters camp massage, manipulate or work the gloves to soften up the pad or any other portion of the glove.

15. Championship/Special Event fighters and camp personnel may verify with NSAC representative that the gloves issued to them have their initials located on the wrapped gloves.

16. At the conclusion of the event the "back up gloves" will be returned to the Promoter and both duffle bags will stay with the Chief Inspector of the NSAC.

17. Please ensure all gloves provided to the NSAC are factory sealed.

18. The Nevada State Athletic Commission has the discretion to resolve any dispute not expressly covered by this procedure.

[QUOTE=MDPopescu;14898912]No, you got it wrong: people aren't arguing "for Maidana" (Maidana isn't the issue here)... "people" are arguing against a dude who is changing, at will, the very context of a fight... a dude who feels he's entitled to change…
