The agreement will see AIBA and the ISF combine resources and efforts to meet their respective objectives in promoting boxing among young people as a tool which helps foster the values of mutual respect, dedication and friendship. AIBA’s expertise will be used to draft specific technical regulations for new events as well as providing coaching know-how, while ISF events will be made available for the practical assessment of young officials
“Boxing is one of the most enduring and universal of all sports, and its popularity is as strong as ever among people of all ages the world over. The ISF knows that every sport has the power to bring structure and hope to the lives of young people, but boxing involves a unique code among athletes that, alongside AIBA, we want to promote through new School Sport competitions and events,” said ISF President Laurent Petrynka.
The implementation of this cooperation will begin during the 2018 Gymnasiade held in Morocco from 2-9 May 2018.
