IBA warns Dutch federation of 'repercussions' if it goes ahead with 'unsanctioned' event
The International Boxing Association (IBA) has warned the Dutch federation of the “repercussions” of going ahead with a tournament despite it being suspended by the world body for “breaching the rules and regulations”.
The International Boxing Association (IBA) has warned the Dutch federation of the "repercussions" of going ahead with a tournament despite it being suspended by the world body for "breaching the rules and regulations".
The IBA recently suspended the national federations of Germany, New Zealand, Sweden and the Netherlands for their "participation" in a "rogue" boxing organisation.
Last month, a group of national federations, including those of the United States and Britain launched a new organisation -- World Boxing -- with an aim to secure the long-term future of the sport at the Olympic Games.
On Thursday, IBA wrote to the Dutch federation, saying it should not go ahead with an "unsanctioned international event in Eindhoven".
The Eindhoven Box Cup is scheduled to start Friday and conclude on May 30.
"On 22 May, the IBA suspended seven National Federations, including the Dutch Boxing Federation, for various breaches of the IBA Constitution and Regulations, which deprives all of them of all membership benefits, including hosting of international competitions," said IBA in a statement.
"Following that, the Dutch Boxing Federation recklessly ignored the regulations and sent an official communication to the National Federations, stating they will keep going on with the event.
