Boxing Club of New York

United States v. International Boxing Club of New York

Was often referred to as International Boxing Club or just International Boxing

The government allowed the exemption of boxing because it had been upheld for the MLB which was unique to the sport and that it did not apply to boxing.

Because it met the definition of interstate commerce, the government could therefore proceed with a trial to prove IBCNY and the other defendants had conspired to monopolize the market for championship boxing in the United States.
