COMPETE IN AN EPIC BOXING EVENT FOR 1 NIGHT ONLY
ABOUT FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY
It’s no secret that England Boxing has always been concerned with the safety of unregulated boxing, also known as White Collar Boxing. It is widely accepted that it can be both dangerous to the individual taking part and damaging to the sport generally. As such, England Boxing have reviewed their position, as governing body, and recognise that the issue needs to be tackled head-on.
BBC Sport Relief recently aired coverage of ‘Entry Level Charity Boxing Matches’ which demonstrated that boxers who wished to experience what it takes to become an amateur boxer, even if ‘For One Night Only’, could do so safely within current England Boxing regulations.
Proving successful, England Boxing will now be providing a better and safer offering to the wider audience, using their platform called ‘For One Night Only’. Individuals wishing to take part in an entry-level boxing match will be able to do so within a properly regulated and safely controlled environment.

“FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY” EVENTS MUST ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING RULES:
The bouts and training must be organised along and adhere to, English Boxing Rules and Regulations.
The boxers must become members of England Boxing and pass a medical in the usual way. It is recommended that this should be done as quickly after agreeing to start training in order to flag any significant or underlying issues.
The boxers must be evenly matched in terms of bout experience (normally this will be zero bouts) and importantly have received the same level and amount of training – minimum 12 weeks. This to be overseen by fully qualified England Boxing coaches.
Boxers must be matched in terms of weight in accordance with the rules set out in our Rule book (available on the website). Differences in weights should be no more that the weight differences in the respective weight categories and preferably lower e.g. 60kg – 64kg = up to 4kg.
Weight needs to be monitored throughout the process, accounting for weight loss / gain during the training etc. It’s been reported obviously the gap in weight is not only an issue of safety but also it gives the boxers an excuse either way if the gap is too great. England Boxing suggest that the 3kg weight limit would be preferred thus giving the “One Night Only Event Boxer” a better experience.
In accordance with AIBA / EB rules boxers must be over 18 and under 40 years of age.
Maximum 3 x 2-minute rounds with 1-minute intervals.
Up to 64kg boxers can be permitted to use 14oz gloves. Over 64kg boxers can use 16oz gloves. Provided both sets of gloves are the same weight.
Given the inexperience of the boxers they should all be trained in one Club or Clubs in partnership with one other Club, and in doing so reaching clear agreement on the pairing and the skills of the boxers concerned.
