Seems the European Boxing Union has suspensed the Luxembourg federation from the EBU, which basically means that Warren’s main excuse for the sanctioning is now void.
Well done to all of the National associations that voted in the? EBU poll to suspend the Luxembourg Federation and maintain true regulation of the sport.

Don’t? forget the World “Slightly lighter than light flea weight” title sanctioned by the Moldovan Boxing Association.

Coming soon on Murloc TV pay per view(£300 on sale this week).

Another example that proves that going into the EU undermines national law/regulations. Basically what it equates to is like saying to our Police, and saying? you cant arrest me, Im in europe also.

However it’s not to discount Frank Warren et al for trying to get British Boxing (and indeed the Heavyweight division in general) back on people’s radars. What I mean is that I don’t blame him and those involved for trying to encourage talk and excitement in the stagnant division, but I do feel he’s gone about doing it in the wrong way. While it may have been the only realistic achievable way to do it, it was dishonourable nevertheless and goes against? everything it now stands for.

But that’s just like saying why have rules in the first place, or why have gloves in the first place then if that’s their original intent; to smack the daylights out of each other. Boxing evolved way past the? state it was initially; one merely of pugilism into one that centred more on honour and integrity irrespective (or rather more because) of the fact of what happened in the ring. I disagree with you mate 🙂 What these guys have done is gone back in time.

I disagree.
Why do people try to make a sport where people punch each other in the face more than? what it is? a fight. Respect to the fact that they are tremendous athletes but they are still smacking each other in the face, how can you call the political controversy outside of the ring a disgrace compared to what happens inside the ring…… >.>
Makes no sense to me.

They seem to be forgetting that rules, like the Marquess of Queensbury, were brought into the game for a reason; to maintain some semblance of order within a sport that had the potential (if unchecked) do untold damage to the combatants and to the sport in general. By by going against the BBBoC, they have seriously undermined not only the authority (the body that should enforce regulations), but the history of the sport. It’s a disgrace, and? this brings great shame on Britain’s boxing heritage.

There are two seperate issues here: should Haye be allowed to box Chisora and secondly should the Luxemburg federation be? able to regulate events in the UK

I’m bringing UFC up as a comparison of Regulatory boards,I agree Haye and Chisora are a disgrace..But They should be allowed fight if they can get enough suckers to pay to watch.Banning them is a restriction of trade.There are too many belts and too many fighters fighting mediocre fights. Th current system does not? work as you have situations like this,and the fact that ‘champions’ can fight once a year against mediocre opp and still hold the belt.We need unification of the sport.

Well, with regards to this? fight both fighters should not be able to fight at all, ever. This is because they are both of one nationality, both have brought Britains boxing into disrepute and both are completely disrespectful to opponants. UFC has nothing to do with this matter, so why even bring it up? Bringing a single body to lead all boxing is a stupid idea, the current system works, its the fighters promoters “the Suits” that need their authority limiting.

Suits fighting over money in other words. Anyone willing and physically able(eg not Tommy Morrison) should be allowed to fight. The crooks at the top are the reasons we have Fighters dodging each other and ‘world’ champions fighting out of a single country and only fighting bums of their choosing.All the regulators are doing is dragging boxing into obscurity.Look how the UFC is? unifying MMA under a single ‘reputable’ brand.All the belts/Boards/regulators need scrapping,nd a single body in chrge.
