Minors will be able to attend evenings in Madrid

minors will be able to attend boxing evenings in the Community of Madrid starting next April 26. The Law regulating the Guarantees of the Rights of Children and Adolescents, in force since 1995, restricted their presence in these events, but the new update that was published on March 22 in the Official Gazette of the CAM, will allow the presence of minors in the evenings of this sport. Madrid’s regional legislation will adapt to developments related to young people and adolescents that have occurred in recent years both nationally and internationally

Madrid is the only region that, until now, did not allow minors to watch boxing in person. They could not attend the evenings, not even accompanied by their fathers, mothers or legal guardians. Those over 16 years of age could compete in the amateur boxing modality, but after their fight they had to leave the event and could not enjoy the rest of the event. Yes, they were allowed to attend kickboxing or MMA evenings, since the law specified that the prohibition was for boxing.

This law perpetuated the stigmatization of boxing, which is increasingly practiced by young people and adults in gyms throughout Spain. The reform of the law comes at the perfect time. Three days later, the biggest boxing event in the Autonomous Community will take place: the evening organized and led by Kerman Lejarraga (34-3-0, 26 KOs), which will feature clashes between the best national boxers on April 29 at the WiZink Center in Madrid, with a capacity for 14,000 people and where two Spanish Championships will be held. This boxing party will already be for all audiences.
