Gauze Policy 2004

At Boxing Ontario’s 2004 Annual General Meeting there was some discussion
around discontinuing the use of gauze.  Following that the Referee and
Judges Commission at Boxing Canada’s AGM, voted unanimously to end the use
of gauze.

However when the issue was brought to Boxing Canada’s board to vote they
decided in favour of continuing the use of gauze.

If you are at all unsure about what you can and cannot use – please refer to
the 2003 version of CABA’s Articles and Rules.  Section 3.1 on page 19
states:

“a. A velpeau bandaging or training hand wrap may be used, the single
bandage not to exceed 2.5m (8 ft. 4 inches) in length and 5 cm (2,1/4
inches) in width.  The use of soft surgical bandage (gauze, not to exceed 2
rolls of 2.5 m in length and 5 cm in width, is permitted for domestic bouts
only.
Tapes, rubber or adhesive, 7.5 cm (3 inches) long and 2.5 cm (1 inch) wide
may be used at the upper wrist to secure the bandages.

b. No tape or bandage may be placed between the fingers of either hand.

c. A boxer’s bandages may be examined upon request and under the direction
of the official-in-charge.”
