This is an extremely dynamic Wiki-based Web site--meaning that the text of any BoxRec Boxing Encyclopedia page can be edited at any time, even as you are reading it. As such, BoxRec.com does not "guarantee" the accuracy of the information contained in the pages offered here in its sister Encyclopaedia. Although BoxRec tries its best to offer only the "best-known" boxing information, ultimately it is up to each visitor here to research and verify for him/herself whatever is in this BoxRec Encyclopaedia. Therefore, should something "bad" happen to you because you had relied upon some incorrect information we offered here, ... well, sorry, that then becomes your problem.

Also, 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.
