    Just an observation with the amateurs on the Edmonton card.

    If Pat Reid isn’t “sanctioning” the amateurs, which is might be the case, because the amateurs used a different weigh-in, as Cody points out, and at past events they used the below group with Andy Social, at the helm so it seems more than likely, that this is the group “sanctioning” the event.

    But according to this groups own rules and regulations in dealing with weight categories, they violated their own rules, at the weigh-in.

    Amateur Fights:

    185lbs- Aaron Bosiak (186.3) vs. Boris Babsky (195.1)

    150lbs- Mark White (148.5) vs. Tony Touch (158.3)
    With 0 fights these fighters fall under the C class of the rules.

    In that case, the actual two weight categories in the first fight is 183 – 188.9 and then 189-197.9 which places these fighters in two different weight categories, right off the bat.

    In the second fight the two different weight categories are 147-153.9 and 154-159.9 which again places this match in two weight different categories, again by this sanctioning groups, own weight divisions.

    Now on another note if you look at their rules, obviously what this group was trying to achieve with newer fighters is more stringent weight categories, or you wouldn’t have what amounts to only 5 – 6 pounds of weight difference per category as part of their rules.

    So, not only do we have fighters competing in different weight categories but we have fighters fighting with weight differences of 10 lbs, which really seems to go against what this rule document is trying to achieve. I think in my own opinion that in amateur you shouldn’t have fighters competing in different weight categories and definitely not having such a weight differential. There is no sense in having weight categories and not enforcing them.

    I’m really surprised they allowed these fights to continue especially with what appears to be a violation of their own rules with the weight categories.

    On a side note, of course after watching the amateurs, I don’t know why the Pat Reid hides behind this sanctioning group. All the officials working this event are clearly wearing Edmonton Commission shirts, and it is all Edmonton staff working the event so why the need to pretend that Edmonton isn’t involved. Despite not being allowed to regulate amateur shows, Edmonton is clearly involved in working these events. Pat should just own up to this.
