Twenty Five European Boxing Federations Meet To Save Olympic Boxing

11 October 2018 Featured

At a meeting yesterday in Rome, 25 European Boxing Federations met to discuss the forthcoming AIBA Congress taking place in Moscow on the 2 – 3 November and the threat of expulsion form the Olympics.

The group unanimously expressed their support for Franco Falcinelli (who could not be present at the meeting because of his suspension by AIBA) and called on AIBA to drop the suspension. This is all the more so, in light of the IOC’s recent statement saying details in the original case against him were inaccurate.

The Federations went onto discuss the very real threat of Boxing being removed from the Olympics and requested through its representatives that AIBA address this situation immediately and work with the IOC to reach an agreement that keeps Boxing within the Olympic Family or face the very real consequences for AIBA and the sport as whole.

The group also called on AIBA to release details of the current financial situation and records within AIBA and confirm any proposed Statute amendments are provided in sufficient time in order that they can be fully reviewed.

Lastly they called on AIBA to ensure an open, fair and transparent election process, overseen by IOC, during the congress, and enact good governance procedures that reflects the best traditions of the sport of Olympic style boxing and ensures thats where we remain.
