It’s essential that boxers monitor their health regularly so that any issues are identified that could negatively impact on their boxing and health in the long term.
It is important that you bring your form along with any other necessary documents, you must disclose any injuries or illnesses that could be relevant.
Summerfield Healthcare’s GPs are approved by England Boxing to complete medicals. Our GPs are specially trained to complete England Boxing medicals in our state of the art, modern medical centres. The cost of an England Boxing medical is £59 including VAT at all of our clinics; based in Birmingham, Cardiff, Shrewsbury & Wolverhampton.
Normally completed within a 15-20 minute GP consultation, a boxing medical is a comprehensive health check that is required for those wanting to participate in competitive boxing, even for amateur fights.
Blood tests are not normally required as part of a boxing medical, but if the clinician feels that they are necessary, the checks normally conducted include HIV, Hepatitis B Surface Antigen, Hepatitis C Antibody, and other STDs.
If you are wanting to get involved in boxing, or are looking to spar or fight competitively, we can help you with your boxing medical requirements. Whether you are a keen amateur or looking to step up to fighting competitively or are looking to get a licence to step up to the pro ranks, our boxing medicals with qualified professionals are just what you need.
The reason for a boxing medical is to check that there are not any underlying issues that could put the boxer at risk during training sessions, sparring or during an organised bout. Knowing that there are no health issues will give the boxer confidence that their body can stand up to the rigours of boxing training, sparring and contests.
Anyone wanting to take part in sparring – defined as boxing training where the blows are delivered to the target area with significant but reduced force – must have a medical with a boxing-registered doctor or their own GP. Sparring is not permitted for those under the age of 10 years old.
If you need a licence to fight in the UK, you will have to undergo a medical examination to determine if you are fit to fight. A review of your medical history will be undertaken, along with an eye examination and urinalysis.
If you are looking to apply for a Professional Boxers License you will be required to undertake a full medical on application as well as annually for the duration of the license. It is also a requirement that the applicant has an MRI/MRA scan on application and every year they have the licence. Also, to ensure the health and safety of a competitor at an event, the boxer needs to undertake a pre-contest medical.
Our private medical centres are conveniently located and meet the needs of families in a wide surrounding area.
