Take it outside
Competitions that use a combination of boxing, wrestling, or martial arts are banned in Florida, according to statute 548.008. Toughman gets around this law by limiting the event to boxing and by paying less than $50 in prize money, according to the Florida State Boxing Competition.
|At least three competitors in Toughman boxing contests have died in the past nine months, including a mother of two in Sarasota. Toughman competitions are not governed by a regulatory body, as in legitimate amateur boxing.|
