Boxing could face expulsion from Tokyo Olympics, IOC warns

Boxing Could Incredibly Risk Being Removed From The Olympics SHOCKER: Boxing faces being dropped for 2020 Olympics as IOC confirm review
Cassandra Gardner | 05 February, 2018, 06:21

Amateur boxing is facing expulsion from the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020 by the International Olympic Committee over grave concerns relating to the sport's finances and governance, Thomas Bach, the IOC president, has warned.

"The IOC reserves the right to review the inclusion of boxing on the programme of the Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018 and the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020", said Bach.

Bach added that the International Olympic Committee would be freezing all contacts with the sport's governing AIBA "excluding the ones on a working level necessary to implement the respective International Olympic Committee decisions".

This decision is extremely disappointing for AIBA as it hoped the IOC Executive Board would have understood that the processes necessary to implement even more measures require more time and that the positive steps already taken in recent times are evidence of AIBA's strong efforts and willingness to reform.

I'm not interested in this. "I don't trust in anything else, only in my work and my job". I don't think so. "I don't understand why it is only around me.


Executive Board made a decision to maintain the financial suspension of AIBA and demanded a new report on AIBA governance by April 30th.

It added, "AIBA has been ravaged by in-fighting since the last Olympics when judging controversies caused huge embarrassment".

"We are still looking into this issue. we want them to (give) a satisfying explanation", Bach said, adding: "We are extremely anxious about the governance of AIBA".

AIBA named Uzbek Gafur Rahimov as its new interim president last Saturday, following the unexpected resignation of interim president Franco Falcinelli.
