The NC Boxing Authority is now the NC Boxing Commission
During the last quarter of 2019, the NC Boxing Authority became the NC Boxing Commission through legislative action by the NC General Assembly.
The former Boxing Authority acted in an advisory capacity within the Department of Public Safety and worked in correlation with the ALE agency. The formation of the NC Boxing Commission replaces the Boxing Authority switching it from an advisory authority to an independent agency. The creation of an independent Commission that still works in correlation with enforcement agents with ALE allows the Commission the ability to formulate and adopt rules and policies in a more efficient manner to serve the fight community in North Carolina.
There have been challenges with the transition. COVID-19 emerged shortly after this change and still impacts event plans across the state. Our budget is still being considered as well though we hope it will be finalized during the 2021 session.
