Amateur fights classed on pro records in AIBA screw-up

607 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Michael

basically set up a world series of boxing for amateurs and then when they turned over to the pro game they put all their fights in the series on their pro records.

It says 60 boxers who appeared in the Olympics took part and most will have defeats on their record as soon as they turn pro, making them less marketable to promoters.

What is Lom thinking? :(

Boxing is already enough of a mind fuck with 5 or 6 belts in each weight division without these fuck heads making an entirely new pro faction.
That decision by the AIBA to make all WSB records pro is a major fuck up btw, 7 or 8 Irish boxers have already fought in the WSB, they muct be pissed.
