Sanctioning near for Alabama

by Ken Pishna | source:

Just one week after Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle signed mixed martial arts regulation into law, the vice chair of the Alabama Boxing Commission, Casey Sears, told that the Cotton State is ready to usher in its own sanctioning.

Alabama House Bill HB457 was recently voted out of the Travel and Tourism Committee. The bill, if signed into law, would give the Alabama commission, under a new name, authority over mixed martial arts in the state.

The bill, according to Sears, would make the following changes:
Change the name from “Alabama Boxing Commission” to “Alabama Athletic Commission”
Provide the state the authority to sanction and approve professional mixed martial arts in the state in the same fashion as professional boxing.
Provide authority to the commission to approve any amateur sanctioning organization for mixed martial arts operating in the state.
The bill will provide standards for promoters and safeguards for fighters.
