A Letter to EUBC president Mr. Franco Falcinelli by Dominic Natò26 June 2016
Is with great pleasure that we want to publish an appropriate assessment of Dominic Natò, an excellent boxer and then a big Technical Director of the French National Team. This is his feedback about Mr. Franco Falcinelli article.
Mr. Nato underline four positive aspects of the revolutionary AIBA choice.
- Restoring the National Federations the legitimacy to manage the two entities of boxing: the amateur and the professional.
- Do not dramatize the value of professional boxers than amateurs. Take the case of Vassili Lomachenko. Olympic champion and world champion in August, a few months later.
- Ability to implement the APB at the national level, in order to revitalize the practice within professional associations.
- The AIBA regulations concerning the WSB was a first step towards integrating the professional in the Olympic movement and especially to ensure the safety of athletes.
