Yes, they will make you shave facial hair if its over a certain length. Not body hair though, although they should make Valuev fight with a rubber suit on, hes one ugly sucker.

I believe that also when harrison took on danny williams,they made him shave his beard,williams said it was part of his relgion,him being a muslim,but i think they made him shave it right back,it was defintly danny williams any way,i remember the commentry team going on about it,but it may have been against someone else cant quite remember,swear it was audley though.

Here's the rules that should be inforced:

1. Short hair
2. No beard
3. No tassles, skirts, or pimp gear
4. Respectful conduct

thats pretty weak...I mean this is BOXING!! they can shout obsenities at each other and hate each other all they want! screw respectful conduct, I want to be entertained.

On another note I`m suprised Briggs was allowed such a big beard through his alst few fights.
