What happens after I have submitted a Fight Review Application Form?
Once Boxing SA has satisfied itself that the application is compliant to the rules for a fight review, the application will be submitted to the Sanctioning Committee, who will first decide whether there is basis for the review to be conducted. If the Sanction Committee approves the review, the Sanction Committee will then recommend for the CEO to appoint, within five (5) working days, three (3) independent Ring Officials to review the fight.
How long will it take to get the outcome of the fight review process?
The fight review process will take 14 to 21 working days from the date of submission to be finalised.
Can the Sanctioning Committee change the decision made by the fight review process?
No. The decision of the fight review panel is final and no further review will be approved or conducted.
What are the rules governing a fight review?
What if the boxer declines a rematch?
BSA can only enforce an order for a rematch when the fight review ordered is related to a national or provincial title, regardless of the defence status to which the Champion holds at the time.
Who has the right to host a sanctioned rematch?
The decision on who will host the rematch will be for negotiations and agreements by the respective boxers’ management and/or promotion. In a case of a national title and where disputed claims to stage the title fight exist, Boxing SA may, among other things, call to for purse bids to be submitted to it by other promoters and offer the opportunity to stage that title fight to the highest bidder upon the terms and conditions that Boxing SA may determine.
