From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Association of Boxing Commissions (ABC) is a North American not for profit professional boxing organization that provides a framework for undertaking boxing bouts and record keeping. It is made up of members from state and tribal boxing commissions from the United States and Canada.

The organization was formed in the 1980's when a number of executive directors of various boxing commissions met to discuss how boxing was handled in their jurisdictions.[1]

The aims of the ABC[2] are to:

  • Promote uniform health and safety standards in boxing,
  • Provide accurate records for boxers,
  • Increase communication between organizations.
  • Publish medical and training information and education for all boxing related professionals,
  • Establish and ran a charitable foundation to aid indigent boxers, and
  • Encourage adherence to, and enforcement of, applicable federal laws by each member of the ABC.
