Boxing Ontario says it is taking steps to improve the safety of its athletes as it deals with allegations it has allowed mismatches to take place in the amateur ranks.
The governing body issued a statement yesterday saying that to "further solidify its continued commitment" to safety it is announcing the creation of a "risk management committee."
The committee will feature seven members from across the province who will strive to make amateur boxing safer, the statement said.
"Any issues that arise within our sport, where our athletes are put at risk, issues that we receive complaints about at club shows, tournaments, through the grapevine, etc., these issues are all meant to be assessed by the risk management committee," said Jason Robinson, Boxing Ontario's director of marketing and communications.
