In Focus: The British Irish Boxing Authority (BIBA)

"The main ethos of the British Irish Boxing Authority is that they want to make sure that boxing emulates the UFC by featuring mixed fight cards. We want the female fighters to have the same opportunities as their male counterparts, and for them to be able to grow their profile! Professional boxing really needs that now, and BIBA is going to give them that opportunity! That is exactly why we at Sportanarium Events decided to take out our promoters licence with them"

Trevor Lake, CEO, Sportanarium Events

The British & Irish Boxing Authority (BIBA) is a professional boxing Governing, Sanctioning and Licensing organisation that operates primarily within the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

The British & Irish Boxing Authority (BIBA) has affiliation with many World Boxing Championship organisations including the Women's International Boxing Authority (WIBA) , World Boxing Organisation (WBO), International Boxing Federation (IBF), World Boxing Association (WBA), and the ever growing U.K based, Professional Boxing Council (PBC) which is starting to gain recognition worldwide. BIBA also gives U.K female boxers an opportunity to fight for its own version of the British title.

A core value of the British & Irish Boxing Authority is that they are determined to do the utmost best for BIBA licensed professional boxers, and boxers generally whether they are just starting out in their career or are battle hardened veterans. This can be evidenced by the ever-growing number of licensed boxers, trainers, managers and promoters who feel that for the sport of boxing to have greater transparency and empowerment for its participants that a change is required in regards to the current status quo; never more so than in the United Kingdom where their has been a monopolisation for far too long which can have negative consequences for a "free market".

The British & Irish Boxing Authority’s primary focus – besides the licensing of professional boxers and their coaching, management and promotional agents, sanctioning of professional boxing events, as well as the training and licensing of officials – is the raising of medical protection standards for the sport, to ensure that the health and safety of the young men and women that participate in the sport, as well as the application of the Association Of Boxing Commissions (ABC) Unified Rules and Regulations for Professional Boxing events. This can be evidenced by BIBA making it a mandatory requirement to have remote brain scanners available at all of its licensed events.

Official bout record publishing, for events sanctioned by the British & Irish Boxing Authority (BIBA) are by FightFax (USA) and Box Ranking, who are viewed by many of the regulatory bodies, such as the World Boxing Association, as the true, unbiased and official professional record keepers for boxing.
