Promoters of combat sport matches will be affected by a new bill in the state of Idaho. The Idaho State Athletic Commission has implemented rules to enact the bill, HB 32 (2009), which allows other types of security to be used in place of the surety bond currently required of boxing promoters, kickboxing, wrestling and mixed martial arts matches. Should these promoters choose to opt out of getting a surety bond, there will now be alternatives in place in order to operate legally.
