Additional Event Notes:

 1) The BIBA Introduced Infra-Scanners to test for bleeds on the brain both pre and post contests.

In the case of this event a thirty-minute interval between the third and fourth bout was introduced in order for the boxers competing in the first three bouts to undertake post-fight scans.

For future events a new procedure has been developed and will be initiated immediately that will enable the boxers to be immediately scanned post fight without any delay to the event schedule.

 

2) Dr Louise Eccles successfully introduced a new process for the Ringside Medical team, based on the procedures developed by Dr Mark Xuereb and utilised on MBC/BIBA Maltese events.

This new procedure enables the Ringside Medical team members to monitor boxers in competition from different positions around the ring.

A major benefit of this new procedure is that besides the monitoring of boxers from various positions ringside, it also provides the Medical team the ability to attend to an injured boxer more quickly if required.

 

3) Concern has been noted, with regard to the weight difference between opponents at this event.

Whilst many were within the universally acceptable levels, it is still felt that a procedural statement should be issued for promoters and matchmakers.

BIBA have a data base that includes the historic weights that BIBA licensed boxers have previously competed at, as such in future BIBA will advise promoters and match-makers of the historic highest and lowest weights of each competitor in an attempt to ensure that all bouts are closer matched and within universally accepted levels.
