AIBA women's commission vice-chairwoman Bettan Andersson said she believed having women's boxing at Olympics would help improve the overall image of the sport. "If women come in, people will feel the sport is more common, not so dangerous, and that would be a very good thing for the image of boxing,".

What is with AIBA light contact boxing - promissed in AIBA newsletter last year?
This should be the best way for youth, children and woman.
