How PYaAT Works

*It is important to note, PYaAT is NOT a labor union for professional boxing.

What is PYaAT? - PYaAT is an organization that provides educational information to amateur & professional boxers about the business of boxing.

 

Why do professional boxers need education and information of the boxing business? - Unlike other major professional sports, boxing is not an association and does not have a labor union. Labor unions in the associated professional sports allow the athletes to band together to protect their rights, health, and contracts. PYaAT provides essential information to fighters to help protect them in the business of boxing.

 

What does PYaAT do? – Our job is to educate and inform professional boxers on the treacherous nature of the boxing business. Although PYaAT is not a labor union, the mission is to act in the best interest of the fighters and provide similar protection in which labor unions in major sports provide for their athletes.

How do fighters obtain the education and information of PYaAT? PYaAT is available in various forms. See below:

Boxer-Manager Agreement

The Boxer-Manager Agreement was created by attorney, Angela Adams and Adrian Clark. This legal document was produced for fighters to have the ability to contract the services of their selected manager/advisor. The fact that fighters do not have a union, or council in place to regulate representation or issued contracts, it is imperative that fighters utilize this document to protect themselves. Please watch the video above and it will break down the particulars of this agreement. The agreement is available for download, below.
