   (a)    Upon the proper filing of an application for a referee's, judge's, matchmaker's, timekeeper's, manager's, trainer's or second's license and payment of the applicable license fee, the Boxing Commission shall issue the license to the applicant if it determines that the applicant is of good moral character, is not likely to engage in acts detrimental to the fair and honest conduct of boxing matches or exhibitions and is qualified to hold such a license by reason of his knowledge and experience.
   (b)    A person shall not be determined to possess the knowledge and experience necessary to qualify him to hold a referee's license unless all of the following conditions are met:
      (1)    The person has completed such referee training requirements as the Commission prescribes by rule;
      (2)    The person possesses such experience requirements as the Commission prescribes by rule; and
      (3)    The person has obtained a passing grade on an examination administered by the Commission and designed to test the examinee's knowledge of the rules of boxing, the Commission's rules applicable to the conduct of boxing matches and exhibitions and such other aspects of officiating as the Commission determines appropriate to its determination as to whether the applicant possesses the qualifications and capabilities to act as a boxing referee.
   The Commission shall issue a certificate to each person who meets the requirements of subsections (b)(1) through (3) hereof.
   (c)    If upon the proper filing of an application for a professional boxer's license, the Commission determines that the applicant meets such qualifications and, in the opinion of the licensed physician who examined the applicant pursuant to Section 143.11, is physically fit to engage in boxing matches or exhibitions, the Commission shall issue the license to the applicant.
   (d)    Each license issued pursuant to this section shall bear the correct name and ring or assumed name of the licensee, the address of the licensee, the date of issuance, a serial number designated by the Commission and the signature of the Commission Chairman.
   (e)    A license issued pursuant to this section shall expire twelve months after its date of issuance unless renewed. Upon application for renewal and payment of the renewal fee prescribed in Section 143.13 the Commission shall renew the license unless it denies the application for one or more of the reasons stated in Section 143.22. If the application is for a renewal of a professional boxer's license, the Commission shall also require the applicant to submit the results of a physical examination that a licensed physician conducted not more than thirty days prior to the date of the application.
