Default Becoming a Referee/Judge

Hi guys,

My brother in law is interested in becoming a judge/referee, and I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the process or how to go about it.

I might even give it a crack myself if I can find the time.

In Australia to qualify as a boxing referee you just need to be proven incompetent.

What good will showing some cash do, Like most places, here you need to do the required amount of Trial cards, Be at a satisfactory level. You then get to judge.
Instead of rellying on second hand info of other people, You should actually venture out to the fights and see what the Judging is like here. Then again its far easier to critise from your coach at home isnt it.

Particularly if one has a stubbie/tinnie in each hand
Actually that's a good idea. Stubbie = Red corner, Tinnie = blue, Whichever is empty @ the end is da WINNER
Can't wait to test the system

First you need psychiatric evaluation.
Then you need a dermotolistic course of steroids to thicken your skin.
Then it's off to Tibet for a third eye.
Get used to peanuts for currency
And finally, be multi-linguistic, have at least one year in the peace Corp or diplomatic service & at least a year being a slow moving Target for JWP at Boonchu.

Failing the first one is good, because it lessens the chances of you being addicted to anti-depressants.

Contact either Tony Batten or Craig Waller from the Combat Sports Authority, they can send you the relevant paperwork and advise you on the steps from there
