MBC International are proudly involved in the development of a new wheelchair, which has been designed by eminent engineer Colin Wood, to enable disable boxers to be able to compete in the sport.
Discussions are already underway with both AIBA (The World governing body for Amateur Boxing) and the Olympic Committee for wheelchair boxing to become eligible as a Paralympic sport in the near future.
Malta Boxing Commission and MBC International also support amputee (leg) boxers and are willing to consider licensing amputees should they meet the stringent medical standards required.
MBC International is also involved in a co-operation with the Prize Fighter Championship organisation, by the developing a unique high protection lightweight glove (1oz).
It is expected that with these gloves and operating under recognised professional boxing rules and regulations the so called Bare Knuckle Boxing, under the MBC and PFC will move from being seen as an underground sport to become a recognised main stream sport.
