    Hope this is a good enough answer:

    "Semi-professional boxing involves contests in which the participants do not wear headguards or vests but where the contests are of shorter duration than professional contests. Contests are most often held over 3x2 minute rounds or 4x2 minute rounds.
    Semi-professional boxing appeals to fans because it does not adopt the computer scoring system used in amateur boxing and with the short duration of the contests it makes for explosive match-ups. Participants are drawn to semi-pro boxing for a number of reasons - some to move on from their white collar or amateur careers without having to commit to the rigours and potential initial expenses of being a professional; others because they are now too old to box as an amateur; and an increasing number of amateurs looking to gain experience boxing under professional scoring before making the transition to the professional game.
    If you need any more info/questions i will try to get them answered for you from the promoter/coaches etc

    but anything outside the BBBC is unlicensed ? call it semi pro, white collar etc etc ... its just unlicensed boxing at the end of the day. What weight are the gloves used ?

    10oz adidas aiba boxing gloves - supplied by the promoter.

    You will still need to fill in a medical questionnaire/form and get checked by the Dr before you fight! Also why would you want to fight with poor vision?

    All weights use the 10oz gloves - if someones over weight they can end up with 16oz gloves or come to some form of agreement!

    Semi pro is a good way to split the level/ability i think.......better than amature, scoring is similar to pro etc but i understand why it makes you laugh as there are poorly shows out (not just boxing!) and there and loonatics that think 1 boxing match without a head guard and they are the next Mike Tyson!!

    What ever people like to call/class it Sams shows are always good and everyones treated well etc hence why going in to the 4th year of his shows he will be able to sell out a 500 capacity boxing dinner!

    If you think you are good why dont you just go along to a local mma/thai/boxing club and see how you get on as the coaches there will no doubt have contacts UK wide for these types of shows and will judge how good you are and get you matched?

    I can understand why you want to fight, many on here have probably taken fights while carrying an injury but most injuries heal - you only got 1 good eye..... you dont know how much damage 1 punch may do it!?
