LEGENDARY Gwent trainer Enzo Calzaghe has had his training licence reinstated by the British Boxing Board of Control.
The 61-year-old, one-time coach of undefeated world champion Joe Calzaghe , his son, required a new licence when his old one lapsed following Joe’s retirement.
But Calzaghe was not permitted to renew his licence until he undertook the mandatory BBBoC first aid course.
Now the trainer of 30 years has completed a course in Cardiff on June 7.
Calzaghe already had a St John Ambulance first aid course certificate, which was once a valid BBBoC approved first aid qualification, but the board insisted he do their “three to four hour” course.
Calzaghe, who has been in the corner for 33 world title fights for for Joe, Enzo Maccarinelli and former WBA light-welterweight champion Gavin Rees, took a break from boxing when Calzaghe Jr retired in 2009.
