IBA concerned about quality of judges at Asian Games boxing tournament

The International Boxing Association (IBA) has expressed concern over the quality of judges’ work at the Asian Games, which are being held in Hangzhou, China.

In June, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) accepted the recommendation of the organization’s executive committee not to return recognition to the IBA because the association had not fulfilled the necessary conditions put forward in December 2021. IBA specialists are not involved in work at the Asian Games. As indicated in the association’s press release, the IBA notes the high level of organization of the competition, but it is regrettable to note that “such a magnificent sporting spectacle is overshadowed by the errors of certain referees”.

— I have received numerous complaints from athletes and team delegations participating in the Games boxing tournament. They are all concerned about the many errors made by the judges. However, the IBA is not participating in this tournament due to the IOC’s controversial decision (to revoke the recognition of the IBA).

The issue of transparency in all aspects of governance must be at the forefront of any boxing competition. “Unfortunately, athletes have encountered problems competing under the auspices of the IOC boxing division, which does not have the same level of rigorous selection process as the IBA, which is run using technology of cutting-edge artificial intelligence by respected independent experts,” Umar was quoted as saying. official site International Boxing Association.

Last November, he announced that the association had reinstated the rule for reviewing the outcome of the fight.

“The IBA believes that this rule should apply to the Olympic qualifying events and the boxing tournament of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games to ensure fair results and minimize critical errors by referees.” The IBA has the necessary knowledge in this regard and is ready to share its knowledge and experience to protect athletes.

We have received a number of complaints from national federations, not only regarding the level of judging in China, but also during the European qualifying competitions in Poland. The African qualifying tournament in Dakar also attracted widespread criticism. The IBA stands aside only to refer the concerns of the national federations to the IOC for clarification and appropriate action. The IBA is ready to offer the IOC any assistance to avoid such situations in the interests of our boxers,” Kremlev noted.

The Hangzhou Asian Games will end on October 8.
