According to the head of the newly renamed International Boxing Association, boxing will revamp a judging system that has been tarnished by manipulation in order to recover its spot on the Olympic programme for the 2028 Games.

Boxing, weightlifting, and the modern pentathlon were all omitted from the first list of sports for the 2028 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, and the International Olympic Committee has requested that they be included back in by the organization.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is worried about suspicions of widespread rigging in Olympic fights and other IBA events, according to the findings of an inquiry performed at the request of the IBA during the previous two years. After omitting the International Boxing Association (IBA), the International Olympic Committee (IOC) staged this year’s Olympic boxing competition in Tokyo.

It was determined that referees and judges were forced to influence Olympic bouts in 2016, although it was not possible to determine which particular fights were rigged. “We have nothing to hide,” IBA president Umar Kremlev stated of the findings of the probe.

“We must cope with this and devise a plan of action that will assist in our reinstatement at the IOC session in 2023,” said the team’s captain (when the 2028 programme will be decided). We must continue to make improvements to our administration. In less than 72 hours after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) informed us of our exclusion from the 2028 programme, we introduced new forms of management. ”

Members of the International Bar Association’s congress agreed Sunday to alter the association’s branding from its former initials, AIBA, to give member federations a greater voice in the organization’s operations, and to establish an “independent integrity unit.”

If their guilt is proven, they will be banned for life and will not even be permitted to attend boxing matches as spectators, “Kremlev stated of the suspicious judges and referees.”

When boxing was initially included in the Olympic programme in 1904, it became a staple of the Summer Games, appearing in every edition since 1920.
