The president of the WBC, Mauricio Sulaimán, raised his voice stating that the internal problems between the International Olympic Committee and AIBA are putting boxing at risk.
After attending a boxing congress in Sochi, Russia, it was commented that AIBA wants to take this sport out of the Olympic Games due to their por administration of the Last years.
Given this situation, the top leader showed genuine concern because first and as he said, boxing has been a sport that has always been in the Olympic Games and is also the platform for athletes across the country to achieve Olympic glory.
“We can not allow other people’s situations to end with a historic sport at the Olympic Games, everyone who loves sports should raise their voices for boxing, today the WBC takes action against this possible risk and launches the campaign:
‘Yes, to boxing In the Olympics!’
We want everyone to participate and sign this initiative, we must unite and make a common front.
Today, for example, I had the opportunity to talk with Lennox Lewis, who categorically disqualifies this proposal from AIBA.
We are the voice of boxing and it is our responsibility to defend the right to participate in the Olympic Games,” he concluded
