Editorial: Who Pays Fighter Health Insurance
President of Elite Athlete Management, [I]ErikW[/"]No BS Martial Arts - View Profile: ErikW@@AMEPARAM@@View Profile: ErikW</title>@@AMEPARAM@@ErikW contrasts the regulations with the way some shady promoters do business, on the subject of Who's Responsible for Fighter Health Insurance. Here's a snippet:
Worse yet, there are promoters out there who are taking advantage of unrepresented or under-represented fighters who simply don’t know what they are responsible for. Many times a new fighter will be told by the promoter that the fighter is responsible for a deductible; when actually, the state prohibits such a charge. Many promoters rely on the fact that a new fighter is simply trying to get experience and will not either research the state statutes or boxing commission rules or, even if they know, they will not “rock the boat” by reporting the promoter’s violation to that state’s regulatory agency.
