Pro boxers asked to submit
medical papers before match

MANILA -- A lawmaker has filed a bill imposing additional requirements before a boxer can be given a license professionally and for boxing matches, a government press release said.

Under House Bill 5799, authored by Cavite Rep. Lani Mercado-Revilla, professional boxers are mandated to submit a medical clearance every six months and insurance coverage of all professional boxers as additional requirements before engaging in a fight.

Mercado-Revilla said under the measure, a professional boxer is directed to submit to the Games and Amusements Board a medical clearance every six months, not later than June 31 and December 31 of every year. Such clearance shall be a requirement for the boxer to continue fighting in boxing matches, the press release said.
