§ 21.14. Insurance.
(a) Boxers engaged in professional contests and exhibitions under the jurisdiction of the Commission shall for their financial protection be covered by the most advantageous life and accident insurance contract available through negotiation and agreement by the Commission with a private insurance company approved by the Insurance Department to do business within this Commonwealth.
(b) The promoter of each professional event under the jurisdiction of the Commission shall deduct from the purse paid to the manager of the boxer the cost of the insurance for the boxer and shall pay to the Commission the full amount due in accordance with the current premium schedule. Failure to make immediate payment of insurance premiums as provided shall render the defaulting promoter eligible for suspension and license revocation.
(c) It shall be the responsibility of a boxer who suffers injury covered by insurance to report the injury promptly to the examining physician assigned to the event. The responsibility shall extend to the chief second of the injured boxer, as well as to other persons officially attached to the boxer. Failure to report to the examining physician or, if for any reason he is not readily available, to the Commission shall constitute grounds for suspension and license revocation.
(d) Upon receipt of notice of injury to a boxer, the examining physician shall make examination and investigation and shall promptly report pertinent findings to the Commission upon the official form provided for that purpose in the Medical/Safety Manual.
