The Ukrainian national team will boycott the European Boxing Cup in Montenegro

Representatives of terrorist countries will participate in the event

Boxing Federation of Ukraine announced boycott of the European Cupwhich should take place in Montenegro.

The reason for refusing to participate in the tournament is the presence of boxers from terrorist countries at the European Cup. At the same time, in September the European Boxing Union (EBU) extended the suspension of Russian athletes and officials from international competitions.

Last fall, the International Boxing Association (IBA) suspended the activities of the Ukrainian Boxing Federation. The organization considered that Ukrainian government bodies were interfering in the work of the sports organization.

Subsequently, the Ukrainian junior boxing team left the European Championship, which was held in Italy. This decision was made after the International Boxing Federation (IBA) did not allow the Ukrainian team to compete in Montesilvano, Italy, under the national flag.

Later, the IBA confirmed permission for Ukrainian boxers to compete under the national flag at international tournaments.
