Boxing licenses are not legal documents. They are just a convention. You can fight unlicensed legally, or with a mickey mouse license if you want.
The BBBofC's licenses have always carried a fair amount of weight though. The BBBofC is considered a high-standard boxing authority. That's because - and why - it has held such a monopoly in prestige in this country.
Something that is being challenged and eroded now by this promotion.
Well, they can withdraw more licenses.
That's about all.
Within a few years, there might well be alphabet soup anarchy within the UK.
