“I am so sorry to hear the sad news from Dominique Nato regarding the premature passing away of Fathi Madfoua, the valiant French Referee and Judge.
An inexorable disease took him away from the affection of his family, his colleagues, his France Boxing Federation and from many friends around the world.
I was one of them. I knew him from many years and I have always appreciated his performances in the AOB International competitions, APB and WSB Seasons.
Fathi started his international career in 1999 as EABA Official and he was appointed in more than 120 International Tournaments: the Francophonie Championships, Mediterranean Games, European Games, Asian Games.
Junior, Youth, Elite World Championships, Olympic Qualification Tournaments until to crown his fantastic career with Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
On behalf of EUBC Family, I would like to express my sincere condolences to his family, to AIBA RR/JJes Commission and to the France Boxing Federation.
Adieu Fathi ! “
Franco Falcinelli, EUBC President
