“Such important reforms as we have seen require broad communication and the re-education of all the stakeholders that comprise the AIBA Family, to make sure that the reasons behind the changes, as much as the changes themselves, are widely known and fully understood. After Rio 2016, as we embarked on the new Olympic cycle to Tokyo 2020, AIBA committed to reforming aspects of the Technical and Competition Rules, as well as reinforcing the Code of Ethics and behavioural expectations of all those who represent boxing, as we seek to continue spreading the sport’s positive values,” said AIBA President Dr Ching-Kuo Wu.
The campaign includes far-reaching educational programmes directed at all levels of the sport from the new GlovesUp entry-level module up to 3-Star R&Js and Coaches, with emphasis on ethics and behaviour as well as taking a look back at the legends past and present that have been a central part of the AIBA story.
While uniting AIBA’s members and embracing the progress of those athletes who have left an indelible mark on the AOB, WSB and APB competitions over the years, the #AIBAFamily campaign ensures that it continues to be the only organisation that provides its boxers, coaches, R&Js and technical staff with tangible support and education throughout the development of their careers.
