An un-gloved punch is assault in English law. There is no legal regulation of gloved boxing other than not doing anything so negligent you get convicted of manslaughter. It's been that way more or less forever. The BBBofC is Sport England recognised, but it doesn't have any particular legal standing, it's just the dominant sanctioning body.ToffeeApple wrote:I think the illegalities are to do with tax, whether you may hold events in the area, etc. I don't think fighting itself is illegal like it used to be.
