§ 21.7. Matchmakers.

 (a)  Matchmakers shall be licensed by the Commission and shall be employed only by licensed promoters. Matchmakers shall be familiar and comply with the Athletic Code and this part with special reference to contracts, the giving of advance notice, the advertising of events and the due observance of legal weight differentials between opponents.

 (b)  Matchmakers shall be familiar with the records, the abilities and the physical condition of boxers for whose services they negotiate. Matchmakers shall take notice of suspensions issued by any commission, including those in other jurisdictions, and may neither contract nor negotiate with unlicensed managers or boxers or those who are under suspension, except by written permission of a commissioner or the Executive Director.

 (c)  The matchmaker for each event for which he has been engaged shall submit to the Commission at least 5 days prior to the event the true legal names, the ring names and the correct legal addresses of boxers under contract to participate unless this has been done by the promoter. This requirement will be waived by a commissioner or the Executive Director only for sufficient reason. The matchmaker shall advise managers and boxers under contract for an event of the time and place of the official weigh-in and of the time and place of their appearance for the actual event.
