I am delighted to announce that the Hon Dr Tony Buti, MLA, Minister for Sport and Recreation has announced that Cabinet has approved the appointment of Ms Erin McGowan and Mr Milan Bevk to the Combat Sports Commission for a period of 2 years, commencing 1 August 2021.

Ms Erin McGowan is a former amateur and professional boxer who has won National and World titles over a 20-year career. Erin is an active boxing coach, personal trainer and doping control officer for the Australian Sports Commission. Her knowledge of the boxing industry and greater understanding of the challenges young female contestants face within the combat sports industry will be an asset to the Commission.

Mr Milan Bevk is currently completing a Bachelor of Law whilst working as a trainer and assessor in the field of occupational safety and health. Milan’s combat sport experience expands across multiple disciplines and combat sport gyms. He provides excellent knowledge and insight into the combat sports industry and his background compliments the appointed position.

I congratulate and welcome both Ms McGowan and Mr Bevk into the broader combat sports family and sincerely thank the outgoing Commission member Mr Ben Cant for his commitment and service to the Commission.

The Hon. Bob Kucera APM JP
Chair, Combat Sports Commission
