Guidance for the appointment of officials for For One Night Only events is detailed below.

  • All For One Night Only events must use England Boxing-affiliated officials.
  • Only experienced officials who understand the need to support and encourage all boxers/competitors to enjoy the experience of competing should be used.
  • Officials must be prepared to accept that the level of competence and understanding of rules by boxers may not be at the level of open competition standard, and should adjust accordingly.
  • They should be aware that For One Night Only events 14oz or 16oz gloves may be used for all weight classes. This will have been agreed by the coaches and supervisor prior to the event starting. Please note: only one brand of AIBA-approved gloves may be used at any one event.
  • Boxers should be paired according to England Boxing Championship weight rules.
  • There may be an occasion where a boxer cannot compete because there is not a safe pairing to be made. Boxers’ health and welfare is paramount.
  • All boxers must have a pre-bout medical.
