An Open Letter from David Berlin, Executive Director, New York State Athletic Commission
To The Entire Boxing Community:
As most of you may already know, I have recently been appointed as the Executive Director of the New York State Athletic Commission. Many of you know me from my work as an attorney representing fighters, as well as others in the boxing community. Some of you also know me from my articles about boxing and the law that have focused largely on ways to implement positive change in the sport and how to protect the boxers who ply their trade in what has been rightly called “the hardest game.” I have always believed that boxers who display their courage and dignity in the ring deserve the sport’s protection.
