REFEREES, JUDGES AND TIMEKEEPERS
All Referees, Judges and Timekeepers officiating at either a Malta Boxing Commission or MBC International sanctioned event are required to be licensed by either the Malta Boxing Commission or another officially recognised professional boxing sanctioning organisation.
Whilst the MBC currently only have respected and highly qualified Referees and Judges licensed, there are regular Referee and Judges courses, undertaken by either World recognised and highly respected Championship referee and Judge, Mr. Mickey Vann or the highly respected 2008 Beijing Olympics Referee and also a recognised Championship Judge, Mr. Billy Phillips, to ensure that the MBC will continue to have World class referees and judges available in the future.
Chief MBC Timekeeper, Mr. Ken Honniball, also undertakes training of potential MBC Timekeepers, this is in the form of a training course as well as the shadowing of MBC Timekeepers at events.
Only the MBC Board appoints Referees, Judges and Timekeepers for events sanctioned by themselves and each are paid a set fee, which is determined by the size and nature of the particular event and by the nature of any particular main event or Championship contest to which they have been appointed.
