November 21, 2020 | by Matt Halfpenny


Boxers looking to compete in 2021 are encouraged to make themselves aware of important changes to the World Anti-Doping Code and 2021 Prohibited Substances List.

UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) – who help oversee WADA regulations in England – are supporting the push for athletes in all sports to familiarise themselves with both documents so any unintentional mistakes and bans can be avoided.

Both will come into force from 1st January 2021.

The major changes to the 2021 Prohibited List are listed here (with and infographic summary below) and general information on the Prohibited List can be found here.

The full documents can also be found on England’s Boxing’s Key Anti-doping Information website page.
