WBC Extends Clean Boxing Enrollment Period

By Togorashi

Due to the increased activity around the world brought about the ongoing Summer Olympic Games, the World Boxing Council (WBC) has extended the deadline for eligible boxers to enroll in the Clean Boxing Program (CBP). The new enrollment deadline is September 9, 2016. Any eligible boxer who is not registered in the CBP will be removed from the WBC rankings and suspended from any activity in the WBC.

One of the most salient aspects of the CBP is that it includes out-of-competition, random anti-doping testing. All WBC champions and the boxers included in the top 15 in the WBC ratings must agree to out-of-competition, random anti-doping testing. Enrollment in the CBP is mandatory for all eligible boxers.

To enroll, simply follow this process:

1. All boxers are required to watch the Clean Boxing Program Webinar, which provides information about anti-doping and illegal procedures in boxing.

2. Fill-in and sign the forms and email them directly to the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA).
