Association of Boxing Commissions Reviewing NSAC's Decision to Ban TRT
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.28.2014



The Association of Boxing Commissions president has issued a recommendation to all member commissions avoiding a ban on therapeutic use exemptions for testosterone replacement therapy. Tim Lueckenhoff issued a statement (via MMAjunkie) that said he will looke into the NSAC's recent ban on exemptions.

The statement read, "I will ask the medical committee to consider and review Nevada's new position on the matter which is a strong deviation from their past practice. I will also ask our legal committee to counsel us about the legal ramifications, if any, from an outright ban without exception for any reason."

Lueckenhoff said that the NSAC's ban, which was announced on Thursday, goes against certain cases that include one at the Olympics in which a man with no testicles was granted a TUE for TRT. Lueckenhoff said the ABC's policy in regard to TUE's is "extremely tough," with exemptions granted "in only the rarest of cases to a very select group of contestants who have a specified legitimate medical need."

The ABC isn't the only commission staying with TUEs; The California State Athletic Commission will retain its policy on the exemptions and while the New Jersey commission will review Nevada's move, they're not making immediate changes. The ABC is the de-facto regulatory body for state athletic commissions, but does not have statutory authority over them.
