Not sure on the following, so do correct me if I'm wrong:

At this stage, as far as I know, this won't affect lads boxing on normal ABA club shows and championships.

This will have to pass a vote by the members first, probably at the AGM (annual general meeting).

It looks as though head guards will be banned for elite internationals through BABA - not the ABA.

Anyone have any further information?
