Amateur fights classed on pro records in AIBA screw-up

605 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.

I really liked this concept and he way the AIBA is going (professionals in general Olympics aside ) but cock ups like this and rampant corruption have really put me off thus summer
