§ 21.9. Managers.

(b) A contract or negotiation entered into by a manager not licensed by the Commission may be upheld as valid by the Commission if the manager is licensed in another jurisdiction.
(c) A person may not be permitted to enter into a contract to manage a professional boxer without first being so licensed. If his license is revoked or allowed to expire, a contractual relationship, which he has with a boxer, will become void as required by section 1103(b) of the Athletic Code (relating to provisions in contracts between managers and professional boxers).
(d) A manager of a professional boxer may not sell, assign, transfer or encumber, or attempt to sell, assign, transfer or encumber an interest, in whole or in part, which he may hold in a contract for the services of the boxer without notice to and written consent of the boxer and of the Commission.
(e) A licensed manager of a professional boxer may act as second to the boxer in a contest under the jurisdiction of the Commission.
(f) A manager of boxers who is adjudged responsible for an offense of violence or conduct reflecting discreditably upon boxing may be subject to suspension or revocation of license, or both, by the Commission.
(g) A manager of boxers who has been suspended by the Commission or whose suspension in another jurisdiction is recognized in this Commonwealth will be prohibited from carrying on managerial activity and from acting as a second within the jurisdiction of the Commission.
(h) When a contest occurs in this Commonwealth, and a dispute arises between a manager and his boxer, the Commission may impound for a manager who is licensed in this Commonwealth or in another jurisdiction recognized by the Commission, upon the request of the manager, the proper portion of the purse of a boxer under contract to him pending final determination of the merits of the matter. If a boxer engages in a contest without the consent of his manager, the Commission may, at the request of a manager licensed in this Commonwealth or in another jurisdiction recognized by the Commission, impound the proper portion of the purse of a boxer under contract pending final determination of the merits of the matter.
