Boxing will, though, remain in the Olympic 2020 Games, with the International Olympic Committee settling a task force headed by Molinari Watanabe, president of the International Gymnastics Federation, and would be charged with supervision the tournament.
The IOC chief, Thomas Bach, also rose up the issue of an expert boxing body getting involved in the Olympics 2020 after setting Watanabe a deadline of the end of June to come up with a plan.
“I am sure the task force will be in contact with some professional boxing organizations and maybe other partners,” said Bach, who also confirmed that Aiba would not return to the Olympic movement without “fundamental change”.
The IOC supposed it had to act after a six‑month study found multiple problems with Aiba, including the risk it could go bankrupt given its parlous financial state, which meant it could not even open a Swiss bank account despite being based in Lausanne.
The IOC report also flagged up ongoing legal, reputational and financial risks due to Aiba’s president, Gafur Rakhimov, being identified as a key member of the Brothers’ Circle, a ‘criminal group composed of leaders and senior members of several Eurasian criminal groups’ by the US Treasury Department, which also said he was one of the leaders of Uzbek organized crime.
Rakhimov denies any wrongdoing. The IOC inveterate that it sustained to have concerns about judging in the game as well as the conflicts of interest among several Aiba board members.
In its conclusion, it also warned: “It is unclear how Aiba will be able to fulfill its roles and responsibilities according to the Olympic 2020 Charter, which are primarily the development of sport and support to the athletes.”
Aiba is hitherto to reply publicly to the IOC’s decision. Nonetheless this month it told the Guardian it would consider legal action if it was suspended. It too upholds that many of the glitches identified by the IOC came about during Wu Ching-Kuo’s controversial 11-year reign at the top of amateur boxing’s governing body between 2006 and 2017. It says it has made large reforms since.
But the IOC was incredulous, pointing out that in its report that many ancient issues with Aiba remained and that a number of people who were in senior places under Wu remain in the organization.
