I understand. But the WBA are a world governing body, and the British board does reserves the right to approve or disapprove. They wouldn't let the WBA sanction fighters to fight here who they have already judged to be 'unfit' (mentally or medically). Do you understand that ?

A few days ago no one - absolutely NO ONE - here would have disputed the fact that "licensed" to fight professionally in the UK means licensed or approved (medically etc,) by the British Boxing Board of Control.

Everything else was considered 'unlicensed' or bootleg, or white collar boxing, "semi-professional" etc. etc.
