Do you need to make a ‘no win, no fee*’ West Somerset claim after being hurt at a boxing match?
Although boxing is a potentially dangerous sport, it is popular with both men and women in the United Kingdom. Whilst there are relatively few professional boxers, many people train and take part in competitive bouts on an amateur basis.
In fact, boxing can be a very good way to get fit. If you would like to learn boxing techniques and improve your fitness, there are classes which offer this type of training. Whilst you may not want to actually fight against a competitor, you can still learn the theories and techniques behind boxing and improve your fitness at the same time.
As boxing is a contact sport, it’s not surprising that participants can suffer serious injuries if they do take part in organised fights. Whilst all organised fights have a referee to try and prevent injuries from occurring, some level of injury is generally unavoidable. Indeed, many boxers are forced to retire at a relatively young age as the risk of a serious injury increases.
Despite being a fairly aggressive sport, boxers must learn to control their aggression and only use it in order to increase their sporting prowess. In general, the integrity of the sport, and the actions of the referee, help boxers to control their aggression and to box in accordance with the rules. Whilst you may be unable to make a ‘no win, no fee*’ West Somerset claim for an injury which occurs during an organised boxing match, if the match gets out of hand and your opponent begins to assault you outside of the parameters of the sport, you could potentially make a ‘no win, no fee*’ West Somerset claim against them.
However, it isn’t just boxers who can experience injuries during a boxing in match. It isn’t unheard of for spectators to get carried out whilst watching a match and this can sometimes result in aggressive behaviour or even fights.

Of course, whenever you go to watch a sporting match, the event organisers should ensure that it is hosted in a safe environment. If you are hurt because the arena or stadium was unsafe, you may want to pursue a ‘no win, no fee*’ West Somerset claim against the event organisers or venue owners.
