The World Boxing Union, WBU, has a list of rules for each of the classes and titles. Some of these are known by most boxing fans. For example, each round is scheduled to three minutes followed by one minute of intermission before the next round. There are some others that are not so well known such as the fact that score cards are collected following each round and submitted to the WBU Supervisor to tally.
The rules and regulations are broken into a number of categories. The first category is general in nature. Another category gives specific rules for the weigh in. There are also medical requirements which includes the requirement that both contestants must have a physical examination, prior to their fight with the results submitted for review. There is also a category for any knockdown or knockout. One of the lesser known rules falls under the illegal actions. This section basically deals with low blows from one boxer to the other causing major suffering. Boxers must also know the section on fight injuries. This includes fair blows, self-sustained, accidental fouls, and intentional fouls.
There is another category covering the rules and regulations for the referee. There are also rules for the ringside physician as well as the timekeeper. One of the crucial category covers the topic of drugs and stimulants. Other considerations include the boxing gloves, bandages, protection equipment, and finally there is a miscellaneous category.If you like what you see, keep going: Utah boxer claims world title
