An IOC spokesperson told AFP that the body was “extremely concerned” with the lack of a new election for the IBA presidency, and the suspension of the Ukrainian boxing federation. The IOC’s executive board “will have to fully review the situation” at its next meeting in December, the spokesperson said.


This places doubts about the future of boxing as a staple sport in the Olympics as the sport’s corruption-tainted world governing body is already excluded from organising its own events at the Paris 2024 Games, as was the case at Tokyo 2020.
