All Slovenian media houses were forced to report the only truth - we have World boxing championship. Naturally out of AIBA amateur system, which is recognised by IOC and Sportaccord.
IBF is also not WADA recognised.
I ask myself if AIBA silence is really good for an amateur boxing?
Is it good silent of IOC?
Is it the correct way of Sportaccord to allow that kind of behaviour?
