To help out less wealthy athletic commissions...
A new proposal drafted for the Association of Boxing Commissons' 2014 conference would created a fund to be allocated for drug testing to help offset the cost for athletic commisions. MMAjunkie reports that the proposal, from the ABC's government affairs committee, will recommend that 20 percent of the organization's annual budget be allocated for drug testing as well as out-of-competition testing. The proposal does not include parameters for testing.
The proposal also suggests that the ABC use its status as a nonprofit organization in order to allow donations to the fund from interested parties. While the ABC doesn't have the power to force regulators to adopt its policies, it does act as a guide on matters of regulation for boxing.
