Professional boxing is a hard, demanding sport and like so many other areas of activity or sport in which young people like to participate there is a degree of risk.

The rules of the Indian Boxing Council governing the licensing of all professional boxers are designed to minimise such risk and to ensure that boxers are fully prepared, fit and properly matched to enjoy a rewarding career with some financial benefits.

The IBC expects that all applicants have had experience in amateur boxing. Amateur records are checked and anybody contemplating a professional career who has not already boxed is advised to contact an amateur association in their area. For anyone striving to get to the top of the professional sport it is almost impossible without first having had a good amateur career.

The IBC may grant a licence to boxers who have no or only limited amateur experience but before doing so they will want to know that they have had proper and good tuition for some period of time under the supervision of a professional trainer and without exception, the applicant will be required to demonstrate his/her skills in a gym assessment prior to further consideration. All applicant boxers are required to be trained and supervised by a licensed trainer/second and all must enter into a standard Boxer Agreement with a licensed trainer of the IBC.

There are 3 categories of Professional Boxers under the IBC

Category Contests No of Round Restrictions
3 STAR IBC SERIES, NATIONAL TITLES 12
2 STAR IBC SERIES NON TITLE BOUTS , GOLDEN GLOVE, ZONE, STATE, CITY TITLES 8

Chairman Ring Officials Commission Add : INDIAN BOXING COUNCIL No 32 Mulberry Garden 2, Magarpatta City Pune - 411013

Whether or not it is possible for any application to be considered further will be strictly dependant on the initial qualification of the applicant and the requirement for new referees within that Zone.

An applicant who passes the initial interview by the VP ROC, IBC, if selected, then proceeds to undergo scoring tests from sitting at ringside and various appointed tournaments with his/her scores being compared with that of the official scoring referee.

Should the applicant pass the process laid down by the IBC the applicant will be appointed to undergo practical tests at boxing tournaments by being appointed to referee or judge specific contests at designated tournaments. Should an applicant undergo these trials satisfactorily he/she will be recommended for a Class B Referee’s or Judge’s Licence to officiate contests of up to 4 x 3 minute rounds duration and will then go on a rota to be appointed by the ROC to tournaments conducted by IBC.

Class A Licenses shall be issued to Referees or Judges based on criteria laid down by the iBC from time to time.
