World Boxing Council chiefs have outlined their reasons for requesting the weight of every current champion holding a green and gold belt.
The main priority of the WBC is the well-being of boxers. With to the inactivity, due to the Covid-19 world pandemic, the WBC has asked its champions for their current weight.
This is in order to monitor them and keep an eye on their health.
We have received a very good response from our champions and their teams, and although some are still missing, we hope to receive them in the coming days. So what is the WBC weight monitoring program?
Once the boxers and their teams have confirmed a bout, the boxers must weigh themselves so that the World Boxing Council can find out what their starting weight is.
Fighters and their teams are required to send their weigh-in 30, 14, and 7 days before the match.
For the 30-day pre-weigh-in, boxers do not require more than 10% of their division limit, for the 14-day boxer they do not require more than 5% and for the 7-day limit, 3%.
With the intention of avoiding over hydration, since last year the World Boxing Council applied a weighing system in the dressing room of the arena where the combat is carried out, in which the fighters do not have to weigh on the scale more than 10 % of what they marked during the official weigh-in.
