YET AGAIN IN THE WORLD OF AMATEUR BOXING “THE HORSE HAS BOLTED AND THEY ARE CLOSING THE DOOR.”

AIBAWITH THE RIO 2016 OLYMPICS NOW HISTORY  AND BECAUSE THERE WERE WINNERS MADE TO BE LOSERS, THE FOLLOWING OFFICIAL STATEMENT HAS BEEN MADE BY THE-SELF-APPOINTED GOVERNING ASSOCIATION OF INTERNATIONAL AMATEUR BOXING, AIBA

OFFICIAL AIBA STATEMENT: "In the meantime, it has been decided that all 36 R&Js that were used at the Olympic Games will not officiate at any AIBA event until the investigation reaches its conclusion, along with further immediate measures adopted by the commissions."

Related imageNO DOUBT THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE HAS BEEN ASTONISHED AND SERIOUSLY ALARMED AT THE AIBA DISCLOSURE AND WILL WANT TO BE INVOLVED, OR AT LEAST KEPT ABREAST, OF EVERY MOVE MADE BY THE AIBA APPOINTED JUDGES IN THIS EXTRAORDINARIY HISTORY MAKING AIBA DECISION TO SUSPEND 36 ‘R&J’s’.

2016 RIO OLYMPIC GAMES: AIBA officially announced decision obviously indicates there were seriously wrong referee and judges decisions given at the Rio Olympic Games. This raises the obvious question; Why were these people chosen in the first place?

Of at least equal importance, is the question how will winners that were ‘adjudged’ to be losers but in reality were winners, be compensated?

By way of example Irish boxer Michael Conlan stated after being declared he had lost his bout against Vladimir Nikitin: AIBA is “rotten from the core right to the top” and he vowed to “Never box under AIBA again.”

Of course, the outburst of Michael Conlan was due to intense disappointment at being made a loser when it appeared he had won comfortably.

However, independent experienced boxing people asked for their view on the winner Conlan vs. Nikitin, all agreed with the Irish boxer Micheal Conlan. It was opinion shared by the media boxing writers with, apparently, none agreeing with the ‘official’ verdict.

An Olympic Gold Medal winner is halfway towards a successful professional boxing career and a Gold Medallist is able to seek a reasonably substantial signing on fee to turn professional’

When it is decided individual, or all, Rio Olympic Games referees and Judges (R and J’s) were guilty of rendering an incorrect decision(s); who will compensate the winning boxers declared as losers by any R and J’s?

There appears to be no doubt any obviously wrongly rendered decision in the Rio Games that unfairly prejudices a boxer from making legal financial gain comes with an entitlement to claim compensation and has the right to seek judgement in a court-of-law.

It is likely there will be no shortage of ‘No Win – No Fee law firms willing to act for the boxers and claim financial compensation.

 

POINTS OFF CONCERN RELATED TO THE PROPOSED AIBA INQUIRY:

  1.      In what form will this extraordinary wide inquiry take?
  2. Will it be an insult to intelligence and allow it to become an AIBA closed shop inquiry, which has happened in the past?
  3.  Who will be the appointed arbiters on the questionable decisions made by the boxing referees and judges.
  4. Will the senior inquiry Chairman be an English Queen’s Counsel (QC) with known sports law experience and assisted by two other distinguished qualified lawyers?
  5. If not, why not?
  6. Who will be the ‘R&J’s’ and, what will be their experience of the chosen ‘R&J’s’ who will determine whether the bxing verdicts were just or otherwise?

The eyes of the World media will be following the AIBA Inquiry like hawks. With corruption running rife in certain popular sports, including the spilling of the ‘blood’ of the once untouchable FIFA, the media hawks will be watching every move – and rightly so.

The IOC has already suffered an AIBA major embarrassment when the much vaunted decision to allow professional boxers to compete in the Olympic Games came with the inference illustrious World boxing champions Floyd Mayweather Jr.; Manny Pacquiao and others, would apply to box in in The Rio Games.

The reality was just three pro’ boxers applied, including one 37-year-old former flyweight champion who three months earlier had boxed as a flyweight but in Rio he boxed as a as a lightweight.It is difficult to imagine a worse embarrassment for IOC, yet this was allowed to happen in The Olympic Games!

From an inside IOC source, BoxingAction is able to reveal there is serious concern at what other AIBA behaviour will reflect on IOC.

If AIBA is innocent it has every right to expect the proposed AIBA inquiry to declare them innocent, even if any, or all, their boxing referees and judges are found to be guilty.

This, therefore, means the proposed inquiry has to be seen to be pristinely clean and any judgements are made with the consent of highly reputable lawyers, with the Chairperson holding the highets barrister rank of Queens Counsel.

Very few people thought FIFA would be totally exposed as being officially corrupt but it proved beyond all reasonable doubt even the mightiest are capable of being poisoned by greed and exposed.

Financial obesity attracts the attention of law enforcement officers. ~
