This BoxRec.com Wiki-based Boxing Encyclopaedia was inaugurated January 2005. All are invited to create a free and anonymous membership here, become fellow Editors, and help add to this on-line database.

This is an extremely dynamic Wiki-based website--meaning that anyone can edit the contents of each page of this BoxRec Boxing Encyclopedia. Even the text you are reading now could be changed at any time. As such, BoxRec does not "guarantee" the accuracy of the information contained in the pages offered here.

BoxRec tries its best to offer only the "best-known" boxing information. But it is up to each individual visitor here to research and verify for him/herself whatever data BoxRec provided here. So, should something "bad" happen to you because you relied upon some incorrect information BoxRec offered here, ...well, that's your problem.

BoxRec does not claim any copyright to the images in its database, but for some rare exceptions (such as the BoxRec logo). As an Internet Web site, and under the "fair use" [1] and "safe harbor" [2] provisions of international copyright law, BoxRec is able to post these images even if someone else claims the copyright to a particular image--until the copyright owner tells BoxRec to take down the image. It is the intent of BoxRec to serve as a free, non-profit, on-line public repository of these images--primarily for preservation, educational, and scholarly purposes. Therefore, permission to use images that BoxRec does not explicitly claim a copyright is not necessary. However, further use of any image is at your own peril.
