“They give them boxer’s licences when they’re not a boxer,” he explained.

“They could get them killed. This is not a soccer game, they could get them killed.

“Why do they give licences to people who have never in their life even thrown a punch?

“If there’s a death, the commission will be responsible.

“Why? Because they issued the licence for the fight.”
