How do I hold a boxing match in the City of Cleveland?

Submit a permit application to the Boxing and Wrestling Commission. The Commission will review the application and draft a report to the Mayor recommending approval or denial based upon the application review and investigation. If the Mayor grants the permit, the exhibition is held and the sponsor pays the City Treasurer a tax of five percent of gross proceeds from the sale of tickets to the exhibitions.
